Lindsay leading Mad Dog

RAIN AND WET ROCK The sandstone around Moab is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. MORE INFO >>>


Mad Dog is to the right of King Cat and left of Bad Cat and Johnny Cat, respectively. Start up the broken blocks and enter the crack. A finger stack crux move or two puts one under the roof for a rest. Pull the roof on splitter thin hands to hands before reaching the anchor. The trick is to milk the small calcite(sp?) edges on the left face.


Friends: #1(2), #1.5(4), #2(4), #2.5(2). Good fixed anchor. 80'

A tricky route that feels sequential down low. A smaller piece (yellow) can protect standing up on the ledge to start the crack proper. Take some #1.5 friends and a couple of green camalots. The splitter out the roof fits #1 camalots best. You'll probably only need one #2 camalot for the finish.

This is sooooooo super fun!!! Another one of my faves at this wall. Although not in the same league as Curiosity……. but nothing is.
A few BD#0.5 followed by several BD#0.75, with a BD#1 finish.
