Description

From The New Wave Wall bang a right and head up a steep hill to get to this nice little crag that sees very little traffic considering how close it is (though it is a steep approach)... But i digress... The crag is split in to two section the left which has varied climbing both trad and sport, the right has a few fun, steep, crimpy face climbs most of which were done on gear until recently when they were retro-bolted...
The left side as i said is varied in style from crack climbing to face climbing and awkward positions on steep rock... nothing super classic but nothing bad...Sparking Poodles (5.10a) is one i think is really fun...
On the right side i really enjoy F-ing The Dog (510d) and Dog Bisquit (5.10c)... Great crimping and interesting sequences stand out as top reasons to visit this section...
Over all a nice crag to hit on a busy day to climb short routes from 5.7 to 5.12 due to the fact that the two sides of the crag face different directions you may be able to escape wind and or sun...

Getting There

From new wave follow a trail heading to the right and up a hill for less than 5 minutes...

I love heading up to this crag, you really can escape the crowds of Rumney on weekends between here and Pulse wall. May 23, 2007

A lot of bolting and retro bolting has happened right of Dog Biscuit 5.10c since the last guide... Ive added what i know but i was wondering if anyone knows more about the routes there and could fill in the blanks... Ive climbed most of the new bolted lines but i dont know what they are called...

Have either of the really hard looking routes on the left side been sent yet? Apr 19, 2008
There are two hard looking routes on the left that are new. The one on the left was put up by Ward Smith, and is 12b-ish I think. This is a fun little roof from what I remember. I did it back in 2004 sometime.


The one on the right was red tagged for two or three seasons, from 2003-ish onwards if memory serves. I assume it has been done since. Jun 24, 2008

Is the bolted line to the right of Skin The Cat, going straight out the roof still a project? I believe this is mentioned in the guidebook, but not listed on The Proj? Apr 19, 2009
