Mark pulling hard.


Many climbers want to get on this one for the name alone. Named after Bob's dog.
This route is tucked away in a small alcove surrounded by cedar trees. It faces west and has a couple of cruxy sections.
It's all about the feet on this one. The holds for the hands are there, but just barely for the grade.
A couple of slight bulges where you zag a little to the right and a little to the left.
Finally a bit of a run to the anchors, but the climbing here eases off and you get to enjoy all that you just got through.
Definitely not a gimme for the grade, you are going to have to fight for this one if its at your limit, maybe even if its not at your limit. :)


This is to the right of Crunch Boy up in an alcove slightly off the main trail and faces west unlike most of the other climbs at Pocket Rocks. Doesn't get any sun until mid-day. Just to the left of a Cedar Tree.


Four bolts and chains.

Carnivorous Bitch owes its name to a verbal fight between two teen girls about the "Harvest (read Deer Hunt) Recess".
The fight was over celebrating deer hunt with a day off from school.
One of the girls was the daughter of a friend of Bob's, and a devout vegetarian.
She came up with this clever retort shortly before being suspended from school.
