Doug starting the chossy roof of Water Dog, 5.11c.


Start where two thin cracks lead up to a bulge. Follow the crack up the right side of the bulge and past a roof, up to fixed anchors.


This route is 10 feet left of Mercedes and 10 feet right of Mister Masters, where two thin cracks lead up to a bulge. This route climbs the right of the two cracks; Pit Bull takes the left crack.


Up to a #3.5 friend.

The first 60' of this route climbs a fun 5.10 crack up to a mess of slings. The final 30 or so feet go up a steep chossy face that doesn't look the least bit appealing. This climb is probably done far too little due to the misleading rating and the fact that it climbs far better than it looks.

If you want another moderate crack after Mister Masters jump on this. The gear is pretty good; SR to a #2 camalot.

Fun, but chossy roof. Make sure your belayer isn't standing too close to the wall.
