Description Suggest change

This is the second bolted route on the west end of Dogwood, just left of Take Me to the River. It is an excellent warmup route for doing MMFM further down the rock. Nice climb if you can manage to do it without the crowd.

The smooth/slimy surface (from water runoff when the water is high)on the first section is no indicator of the remainder of the climb, and the holds that are hard to see from the ground appear out of nowhere once you get closer to them and can see shadow.

I'd be more tempted to give this climb two stars if it weren't so crowded, but I'd definitely recommend climbing it (especially for the reason above).

Protection Suggest change

6 bolts up to the anchors. I found it useful to use a couple of longer quickdraws. The bolt placements are not always in the best location for rope drag.
