This climb is listed as a variant in the guidebook, but I climbed it more as its own route. Start as for F---ing the Dog, move up the right angling crack to the second left angling horizontal. Move left along the horizontal then fire it to the Dog Biscuit anchors.

This is an interesting and fun route for the Rumney trad enthusiasts... I found the crux to be the first couple moves establishing yourself on the right leaning crack. This route also wanders a little bit Making for a pumpy finish.

There are bolts from F---ing the dog that can be clipped at the start and midway through. There is plenty of gear placements some of which can be a little finicky to place. Could be done on just gear
Standard rack to #2
