Description 

The Underdog begins far right at Dog House in a nasty dihedral. One can either stem up the dihedral for half the route or pull up on to the exfoliating face for some thrutchy moves on slopers and sidepulls.

It's hard to tell what was the intent of the bolter. The bolts are easily clipped from the dihedral at which point the climber reaches some large chockstones to begin the decent climbing. If climbing the face, it is difficult to remain off the neighboring Dog Run to the left. The face is certainly harder.

After choosing your own adventure through the beginning, enjoy the overhanging hand crack through the roof to the anchors.

The bottom half of this route is truly bad, but the top half is pretty good and a novelty for CCC, so maybe it's worth a try.

Location 

This is the furthest right route at Dog House. Start up the dihedral to an overhanging handcrack at the top.

Protection 

9 bolts to two bolt anchor.
