Ben Michaels starting the boulder-y crux.

Description 

The obvious arete to the right of the Dog House. Great moves up flakes and corners, and even some nice face on the arete up top. An excellent change from the nearby pure crack line of Mr. Clean.


Location 

Start on the top of blocks. Below a low roof and just right of the Dog House, a cave formed by a massive block (100 feet tall) leaning against the cliff.


Protection 

Takes a standard dacks rack to 3 inches. Descent off a two bolt anchor

You can also top this out by climbing the right side of the roof after the bolted anchors at 5.9

Rafiki's topout is the last pitch of Overdog IIRC, for anyone interested to look more into it. Also I think you can easily get away with a rack from small tcus to a C4 .75 piece.

this climb is 5.8 freaky. Not very fun on lead

haha what makes you say that worth! i kept it together hahaha, although i would, with confidence say that it was easier and felt safer to use the crack to the right of the alcove instead of climbing up into it. (green c4 at the beginning of the crack and make a run for it)

Ate myself a pie and it was delicious. It reminded me of J-tree. It felt spicy but it's actually pretty low-angle. Super fun route!

The bolts were not confidence-inspiring, but there are bomber nuts above. The anchor bolts have some surface rust as well.

Going into the alcove is friggin' hard. Certainly not 5.8. I ate some humble pie that day for sure.
