I guess since it was soloed on the FA, you can't expect it to be all that difficult, but I wouldn't give it a 5.1. I expected a ladder with big jugs and feet at this grade. Either I was on the wrong route or this is a sandbag. lol

I found it easy to protect with wide pro at the bottom. Dog Wall doesn't seem to see much traffic (likely due to a confusing trail across the powerlines leading most people to the upper trail to nowhere). We cut away and packed out a pile of crispy slings on the anchor and replaced with new tubular webbing.

Expect some lichen and prepare to dig out some cracks to place gear.

Fun routes on this wall and avoids the crowds!

Agree. Expected a walk up and maybe I missed something (years ago) but it felt more like a 5.4 at least. I took a nice fall on gear and hey, at least got that out of the way on my first ever trad lead! ;o)
