Puppy Ride is a very aesthetic route, following a long dihedral on beautiful orange rock. An exciting bouldery start, followed by nice hand jams and abundant protection, make this an excellent climb.
Starting under a low roof with juggy holds, pull the roof and into a left-facing corner. Continue up this long corner to the top.
Starts 20' right of Fly With the Falcon; shares start with The Heaven of Animals.
Medium gear (cams, tricams). Bolted anchors.
bad pic...good climb

...except that it's a 1-move wonder with the crux off the ground. If you find yourself pumped after this one, save the Falcon for another day.
'The Heaven of Animals' is the finger crack on the left wall, starting 30 or 40 feet up, and given .11a. Maybe this was the warmup you were thinking of; it definitely gives the forearms a good flush. Fun headwall at the top too.
