Same start as Ramp of Death but finish straight up. The cool crux is at the last 15 feet. Work the drill holes to the right of the bolts. There are lips on them that you lie back. If you can get your foot in the little slot in the drill hole and then big throw to ledge on left left of bolt. You can also go up left on ledges but the lie back is way too cool. Finish on tiny ledges to the right of the anchor.
Mostly 5.8 moves until the top panel. You can escape right if you can't do it.
Try to avoid the inscription on the wall from 1915. It is historical value.
Named after Joe's latest crag dog in training.
Route #4 on left side of Diagonals in the pit starts same as Ramp of Death.

Fun route, not too wet or slimy even after some rain.
As of 6/7/13 I have a concern about the asymmetrical anchoring.
The left side bolt has the typical chains and rap ring; the right side bolt features a ring sans chains. As a result the anchor seemed to produce quite a bit of friction, and some questions about load distribution.
Many thanks to Michael Endrizzi and Joe Mueller for their investments into this area, my family and I love climbing here.
