Great pro and fun climbing. The crux is pulling the slight bulge at the top before heading over to the anchor.

A nice, long route that is mostly moderate until the final bulge near the top (5.9, well protected by a bolt). Fun!

Yes, having finally climbed this route, I can safely say that this is a nice trad climb and also that there is reasonable gear to do the upper bulge w/o using the bolt (if, like me, you forget that there's a bolt there and don't see it!).

Yay, you know I love this one! The dogs in question: Salt = Faith, Pepper = Asia

FUN times at Dogtown!
