Description 

From the top of the first pitch of Weissners Dyke climb slab (.9) with very small gear up to a belay to the right of the Old Mans Dog. From there, drop down and aid (C-1) out the obvious crack that diagonals out the roof (would like to see this go free). At the end of the crack climb very enjoyable flakes and edges up to a fixed belay on top of the Dog (.7).


Location 

Below the Old Mans Dog.


Protection 

Jon hammered a birds beak into the 5.9 crux, it probably will take a small nut there now. Otherwise the pro is pretty good. The aiding is straight forward.

How hard do you think it would be as a free climb?
