Great route, soft for the grade indeed.


Climb the crack system, passing bulges and small overhangs on positive holds, to the top.


On the south side of Holiday Block. Look for the obvious crack system between Rabies and Oyster.


standard rack, bolts at top

Fun lead; soft for the grade, but it has some interesting moves.

Miles C., looks like you're on the sport climb Kennel Club in that video. Walking the Dog is left a ways on that face, just past the next bolted line (Rabies).

Neat video though!
