Routes in Reservoir Dogs

Description

A you walk from the Main Flow area and past the established, ephemeral routes that sometimes form naturally between Matrix and a ridge interfacing with the wall, you'll come to a pond. From this point on to the north is what's referred to as the Reservoir Dogs Area. Several columns formed only twice in known history here that ranged from grade 5 to 6. What happens now is mostly dry tooling with some mixed--all exquisitly technical and sustained. Farming produces some aerated formations that are fun until beat up.

There are two additional bolted mixed/dry routes over the pond that are worth mentioning:

  • Over the center is a M7(?) route that follows a good seem the whole way up. First bolt is above where the ice forms, so either protect with screw or courtesy clip.
  • To the left of the last route is a M8(?) that follows a series of fun, and reachy moves. Same thing with first bolt as last route.

Both routes are equipped with steel clip style hooks on the chains. It is acceptable to TR directly off these.
