As the DCA says, Kennel Club is great for a warmup or a novice sport lead, but don't take it for granted -- this nice moderate face climb has a few spicy moves to get through before you reach the top. A popular route, so be ready to wait in line.
On the south side of Holiday Block; starts about 10' right of Pump Handles, near the east end of the block.
Five bolts, bolted anchors.

Please be aware that the ring on the right side of the anchors has developed quite the sharp edge from people running ropes through it. It was sharp enough to knick the skin on my finger a little. I spun that part to the top but it should be replaced. I would do it if I knew how to properly remove and reset bolts.

New bolt = stupid and uneccessary.

I agree Ben(I hope all is well with ya). That route was fine the way it was. No need to change anything.

J Arms put that extra bolt in because people were climbing way right of the line and taking bad falls instead of going straight up to the next clip. Drill the piss out of that place!!!

I followed this route behind a trad leader long before 1999. And that's the truth. It's a bit thin, nevertheless, it was done.
