|The Dog House
Just left of Hot Dog climb the crimpy face to a crack you can layback. Surmount the bulge and up to the first set of anchors at a huge ledge. Climb past 4 more bolts (crux) to a second set of anchors which are shared with adjacent route.
This is the line of bolts left of Hot Dog...third line of bolts left of the overhanging route with fixed chains - Mighty Dog.
9 bolts, with one midway anchor.

This route is called Dog Breath, shares anchors with another 10a, Rolofson calls Black Dog.
Snoopy and Lil Dog are further left than mentioned above.

On the upper half, if you start from the corner and diagonal right, it's very easy. That felt like cheating, but that's how the three of us did it. Going straight up at the bolts was too hard. The guide says 10d, so maybe the intent is to climb at the bolts, but all the chalk was out left on the big holds.

The big block before going to the anchors seems loose. Would be scary if it fell.

Going straight up the bolt line is doable and definitely no more difficult than 11a at the most relative to the other climbs at this crag. Does look easier out left, but I didn't repeat it, so I don't know how much easier. Fun climb, good movement down low!
