"Tooth or Consequences" is the route lef...


Starts just right of a bolted black pillar about half way down the Pup Tent area. There is an obvious, wide, guano-filled crack about thirty feet off the ground. You will be stemming around this and up to a small roof.

Pull the roof and be prepared for 25+ feet of sweetness on gently overhanging incuts. The "tooth" is key, stick it or suffer the consequences.

There are fixed lowering biners at the anchor.


This starts just right of the bolted black pillar and just left of the excellent Puppy Love (11c).


9 bolts, fixed lowering biners at the anchor.

Admitedly didn't finish it out, I wiped at the chains and bailed to try it some other time. But it is a sweet, and I will get it next time, I hope.

Awesome varied climbing up to where it steepens to fantastic crimp pulling to the chains. Great route, a must do!
