Start to the right of the right-most corner and head up the low angle ramp. The first bolt seemed a little low but the climbing is fairly easy. (A bolted 5.9+ variation, "Ya Moe", heads out left to its own anchors). Face climb up and to the right, figuring out how to get onto the slopey ledge stance with plenty of rock to undercling. Ten feet more of face climbing using side pulls and an indiscreet jug brings you to the anchors.
This is 5.9 in the new guidebook, but I felt otherwise. Feel free to share your opinion.
This is the right-most bolted line on the right side of Kennel that climbs up and to the right :)
7 bolts to LO

the route it self was ok but the variation (Ya Moe) was lame. that route is what i have against glue in bolts (as far as i know they are pretty much impossible to remove). that route will remain forever to remind us what doesnt need to be bolted.

The reach to the jug at the top height dependent even with the right foot - I had to do a fairly insecure bump. For that reason I give it a 5.9+/10A. I can totally see why Lee says it's a 9 but having to do the bump pushes it up a notch for short people. Sometimes I wish people can shrink for a day so they can see how much harder it is :)

Hard for 5.9! I was looking for a warm-up, and was quite warm by the top!
Should Ya Moe be a separate listed route perhaps? We should add it, so I can give it one star, rounding up from a half star. Super hard for 5.9+, and the whole time I just wanted to traverse over to I'm Talking but felt guilty so I followed the un-natural line to the anchors... indeeed quite lame!
