BETA PHOTO: Too Many Puppies (5.11a)


Thin crimpy holds (the crux) give way to an easier midsection. Gain the top through awkward side pulls.


Line goes up the middle of two large stacked blocks of rock directly opposite the largest cottonwood tree in the area (part of the N cluster of climbs on the near cliff band). The route is sandwiched between Wait for It (5.10b) on the left and Kalamazoo (5.10d) on the right.

This has to be one of the coolest 5/11's I have climbed in a long time!!! It is beautiful crimps placed evenly up the face to a side cling. I definitely recommend this climb to anyone!!!
