Description 

Fun slab climbing to a crux roof to some more fun slab. Tough on the finger skin but worth the effort if your in the area. The clips aren't as spread out as the guide makes it seem. Climb up the iron oxide crimpers, slopers, and side pulls to get below the roof for a decent rest. Make the tough technical moves over the roof to get to the good hold just past some cool knobs. Gain the ledge below the last bolt. Make a few more difficult strechy moves to gain the anchors.

Location 

About 50' left of Casual Viewing. This is the last bolted climb on this face before a wide corner. Use a 60m rope rap down.

Protection 

QDs for 5 bolts to a two bolt anchor.

Yeah I noticed that a few weeks ago but didn't know for sure since I haven't been there since that FA day. Real name is DOG FIGHT (mine and Thad's dog got into a little tussle with a few other dogs while we were all climbing)
