BETA PHOTO: Route topo for Moon Doggies, at the Foot in Ojai.

Description 

Fun and aesthetic little crack, although dirt seems to continuously funnel itself down the route.

A huge roof (protected by a 3 to 3-1/2" piece) is bypassed to the right on great holds. From here, delicate climbing up a thin crack leads to the summit.

The actual crux is near the top, on a tricky finger-lock. Place a decent nut and lose the finger lock, or take the finger-lock and forego the protection.

Protection 

Small nuts and cams up to a 3-1/2" piece.

New fixed anchors were placed on top in 2006 (two 12mm Fixe Triplex expansion bolts with rings).

Great route, really fun lead, and the crack protects really well. The two bolts at the top are a very nice addition too. I used to have to extend an anchor point off bushes to set up the TR on this one; now there are two nice bolts perfectly placed for the TR. No rings or chains though. Not sure if someone swiped 'em or what.

Swiped two different times, actually.
