Description

Captain Cheeze Dog is just left of the obvious thin crack (Super Thin 5.9) on the left side of Lower Tier and follows the face straight up to the top. Easier face climbing leads to consistently smaller holds from second bolt up which is where you will find the crux. Although the second bolt is quite a ways up there past the first bolt, the climbing is moderate and the clipping stance fairly secure. If by chance you fall clipping the second bolt you probably would hit the ground. Double ropes or a cool head will get you past this little runout section in safety. All in all, a very fun climb. Route can be easily top-roped by scrambling up the left side.

Protection

Three bolts to 2 bolt anchors.

This is a short but very fun face climb. The runout to the second bolt is not too difficult and the clip is reasonable. You should feel solid at the 5.9 level though. Jul 26, 2005
although shorter and looked easier than the other 9's at lower tier, I thought it was harder - mostly becasue of how small the holds got. Keep a cool head and it's no problem. Sep 24, 2010
