Description 

The aesthetically stunning arete just to the right of To Defy the Laws of Tradition. Begin standing on the large flat boulder and step across to a bouldery start. The route is interesting the entire way, requiring many thoughtful moves with the crux just before the anchors. Superb route.

Location 

From where the approach trail meets the base of the cliff, walk left. Too Many Puppies is the obvious orange colored arete just left of a large corner and just right of To Defy the Laws of Tradition.

Protection 

6 bolts to anchors

Really classic route, several spots for mild hand jammy rests if you can find them

make sure to stick-clip the first bolt, there is a loose hold getting there that could ruin your day

Way fun. A nice break from the steep jugginess that defines the area.
