Hair of the Dog

Description 

A marvelous route of slab wizardry, Hair of the Dog climbs out of a chimney over big holds onto a thin, blank face. Holding two cruxes, one low and one high, don't be stumped by a lack of technique - use those feet of yours.

Location 

Seated in the back of the alcove, Hair of the Dog follows the bolted line just right of the smaller of two chimneys. Its the furthest right route at the area.

Protection 

Seven bolts to an anchor.

I'm surprised this route doesn't get better reviews! I'll admit this thing was a little scary feeling going for the 3rd bolt but it was really engaging and fun the entire way. I liked it and was pretty impressed with how sustained it was. Great line!

I did this last year; my first 5.11 lead. the last 2 bolts are the crux on this. very slabby, very small holds at the end. The chimney was very interesting to climb in.
