This is a pretty fun route, although there are two manufactured holds.


This is right of Big Dog.


8 or 9 bolts / 2 bolt anchor.

Feels easier than 'Big Dog'. Worth climbing.

The Mabe guidebook states that this route starts and finishes with 'Big Dog'; however, it seems to start as a completely independent line to the right, and end at the 'Big Dog' anchor.
Long runner on the first bolt.

Agreed, this line seemed totally independent of Big Dog. You could clip the first bolt of Big Dog on the slab perhaps but certainly not needed.

Not quite as good as Big Dog, but there are fun, steep moves throughout.

Definitely a separate line from Big Dog and definitely worth doing if already at the Dog House and looking for something new. Not worth a trip alone, but if you've visited Dog House numerous times for the winter warmth - it is worth jumping on. I had avoided it for some time but glad I chose to give it a try.
