Topo photo for Tumble Weed.   Colvin on the old Colden Slab. This ascent, though less steep than the new slab is far less enjoyable to climb because it is dirtier and requires a much harder exit (especially for K9s).  <br /> <br />My recommendation, do both slabs, but choose the new slab if conditions are wet or rain threatens. Choose the old slab for the more challenging exit and a  little more slick slab climbing.   <br />  K9 (Colvin) being belayed up the crux headwall of the Colden Trap Dike. I've heard rumors people don't believe dogs have ever ascended the Trap Dike, this is at least the 2nd ascent, these photos should permanently put that to rest.  <br /> <br />Bear in mind it is a 4th class scramble, please note the safety measures employed: Full climbing harness and a anchored top rope belay.  Eagle slide, so easy a dog can climb it. To be fair, he's also climbed the Trap Dike (exit via the old slab), Whiteface #1 and 2, Lake Placid Slide, Huntington Ravine, Kings Ravine, and pretty much every major scramble in the Northeast.  <br /> <br />I should caution anyone from doing this unless their dog is extremely well trained.   General idea of slab steepness. This isn't a hard climb, but it is 5th class slab steep in places, and fairly sustained. However, there are plenty of lower angle rest spots, and unfortunately, more and more tree islands.
