Climb the crack system just left of AC Devil Dog. Lots of stemming makes for a good leg workout.


With two cracks one small and one large, almost any pro can be used.

I found the anchor at the top of this climb to be in need of a replacement. Two cold-shuts; one is a rusty spinner and the other is worn half through.

Climbing the right hand crack without stemming left is a nice variation if you're looking for more of a challenge.

I agree with fivefun. I was there Nov. 2012 and the right cold-shut is in serious need of replacement and would not recommend anyone use it to be lowered off (rap-off which should always be standard practice or traverse over to Rawhide chains).

The cold-shut is worn through at an angle and after reading a about a recent fatality in Switzerland due to a partially worn fixed draw that cut the climbers rope, I can see the potential for a similar situation.

Anchor has been replaced. Looks great! Use it + a bolt to its right as a directional if you want to TR AC Devil Dog.
