Anonymous climber on "Bird Dog"

Description 

Fun climbing on polished limestone. Difficult to get off the ground, but beyond that not too much challenge. Perhaps getting up to clip the anchors is the hardest section (assuming you clip with hands -above- the anchors)

Some fun TR variations exist as well, climbing left and over the bulge to the ledge below the anchors


Location 

To the right of Maggy Needs New Shoes and to the Left of Over Easy. The anchors for this climb are the last ones located under the wall's major roof formation (right end)


Protection 

Bolts (3 I think)

Great route all around, all the moves seem to flow, and the finishing move is a great confidence booster. This was my first lead climbing route.

Correction to Protection: There are 4 bolts not 3, although I generally skip the first one.

Off to the left of bird dog is a fun boulder/mantel problem to start the route. Two hands on the point, feet off to the right, then work your feet left, to a heel hook with the left foot and good luck with this tricky v3+ start, it is the hands after the heel hook that make it difficult.
