About 1/5 way up
Left of Head Over Heals lie two 5.9 "Poodle" routes, A Farewell To Poodles and For Whom The Poodle Tolls. FWTPT is a fun route; a little grainy, but worth doing if in the area. Bartlett gives it a "PG" rating, but I felt it protected fine. The descent down gully to climber's left involves a move or two of 5.3 downclimbing around a large boulder.

Don't forget the 5.8 Poodle route to the left of FWTPT, The Old Man and The Poodle.

We did this today, and both of us felt it was a solid 10a. Be that as it may, it was a very good route with excellent pro. Also, a set of slings around a good sized knob have been placed for a secure rap.

Solid 5.9 line.
