BETA PHOTO: Face containing (L to R) Realm of the Senses (5.9)...


Good warm-up for neighboring Dead Dogs. Crux is 1/2 way up moving through a slight bulge using finger locks and sparse feet. Rabbely crack that is usally a bit dirty- some loose blocks here and there. Belay spot very comfy!


Located on 2nd prominent wall between Arrowhead and the main face. Usually start from the ledge, by the tree. SNS follows through the depression straight to the top.


Can be led but crux pro is in loose rock, very unnerving. No fixed pro / anchors.
Can be TR'd with Dead Dogs.

You can get all 3 routes on one top-rope - Realm of the Senses, Millions of Dead Dogs and Saturday Night Special. 5.8, 5.9, 5.10, very time efficient! (Realm is is easily the nicest line).
