Description 

Not much to look at and mildly uninspiring, Dancing Fox is 15 feet of intense climbing requiring lock offs, body tension, and picking good holds from bad. Choke during the crux sequence and the Dancing Fox turns into the clumsy hippo. Mimicing many problems at Moe's Valley, this route is just a little too tall for a pad. Named after numerous fox sightings, this sly little line is often empty and offers fun, dynamic moves.

Favoring most body types, grade consensus is varied. Either way The Dancing Fox remains solid just above and below it's grade. Long hard moves, a steady selection of pockets, and a mid-route impasse are all fine factors on this quick, steep tick.


Location 

This is the first and shortest route on the left side of the cave. Its between Turtle Soup and Pinching Bird Shit.


Protection 

Three bolts to a chain anchor.

This is a good project (or an onsight) if you like bouldering at Moe's Valley.

Nice boulder problem. It's an easy onsight! It contains 1 crux and its like a v3 or v4.
