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.

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.
