P1 5.7+ 120 scramble up stacked blocks to the face below the Dog. Climb the face (pins) using thin cracks and exiting right onto the dike near the first belay (bolts)

P2 5.7 120 move left up the dike pulling onto a slab with a lone bolt (the hanger sticks out about 3/4 in) friction past the bolt moving left to a crack leading to an easy corner that eats nuts. Belay from a bolt anchor on top of the dogs head


Below the Old Mans Dog, 50 feet left of the Wiessner's dike

Rap the route


Mankey pins, one bolt you may want your wrench for, and a light rack
