This climb is on what is described here as the Upper Animal Wall. If you approach from the Lower Animal Wall the climb comes into view right away as the left side of the bolted arete. A good winter or evening route which sees its share of sunshine. The route starts upon a ledge 20' off the ground. To reach the ledge, you can clip the first bolt of Sun Dog with a long runner, or scramble up 5.8ish. Thin liebacks will take you through the first 3 bolts, to the first 5.12 crux. A ledge is then reached, which provides little rest before more sustained climbing using the arete on the right. The climbing eases slightly in the last 15' to the 2 bolt anchor. 70' This sustained route is a hard to redpoint (I haven't). The position is excellent.
