Excellent route. Definitely taller than 70 ft. More like 90, same as Chihuahua Power. Apr 25, 2006

Great route, looks intimidating for a 5.8 but climbs like a dream. 8 bolts to the shared anchor of Chihuahua Power.

Extremely aesthetic & exposed. A treat for the budding leader or seasoned veteran. Nice! Apr 20, 2009

Really nice thinking lead...8 bolts up and really comfortable moves. Feb 6, 2010
Beautiful place, beautiful area. Great climb. Lots of climbs. Feels like a easy 5.7. May 15, 2010

If you're a weekend warrior like me, this climb is a stiff, sandbagged 5.8 (I'd rate it closer to 5.9, maybe even 5.9+). I climbed a multi-pitch 5.8+ at the Fortress the day before and none of the pitches were nearly as hard as Puppy Chow. The crux getting onto the main face on thin, sharp edges with little or no feet is challenging and the climb is fairly sustained. It requires good foot work more than anything. I found it harder than Chihuahua Power. Oct 7, 2013

Chains have been added for a clean lower to the ground, no more rope grinder. Apr 26, 2015
