The shortest route with the most amount of climbing, Dogma is the wall's candidate for most gnarliest!

Huge huecos, steep pulling, and sandy slopers highlight or lowlight this area's testpiece. Steep and powerful, this route will challenge your strength and mind. A bit of a campus problem, this route won't go down without a fight, but finesse and quick thinking will be needed for a clean go. Hang in there and don't let your guard down, a showstopping crux waits for the struggling climber at the exit.


Dogma is the left-most and shortest route at the crag. It is easily the most aesthetic and inviting route at the wall.


Four bolts and a rap anchor.

The holds aren't as good as they look from below dang it. Hence the rating. Get ready to whip while mantling into the hole next to the anchors.

I'm not sure if holds are breaking or I just suck, but this one felt pretty hard for the grade compared to a lot of routes in the region - though I think the clipping hold at the 3rd bolt was crumbling a bit every time I grabbed it. Pretty foot cutty too!!
