Dog Ate the Homework

5.10a, Sport, 65 ft,  Avg: 1.9 from 25 votes

California > High Desert > New Jack City > Box Canyon East > Boy Scout Wall


Start in a layback and do a few moves until you get on a ramp that heads left. Walk the ramp up to the black streak on the headwall and pull about 10ft of good climbing. For some reason the anchors are way back on the slab up top.... scramble up to find them.


This route starts with a right facing layback flake, at the base of a gully to the left of the main Boyscout Wall.


bolts, rings on top

[Hide Comment] Uneventful start to a ledge with maybe 1 or 2 cool moves pulling a small roof. Anchors located wayyy up top over a low angle rock that causes undue wear on your cord.

[Hide Comment] Totally agree about the anchors...


Disagree however about the route being a BOMB...

Not the best for sure...

but also NOT a BOMB in my opinion...

worth doing once for sure... May 24, 2007
[Hide Comment] The arc was ok, wish it was bolted straight up the face so rope drag wouldn't be a factor. Couple really fun moves near top. I enjoyed this route, get on it if the main area of boy scout is busy. Aug 3, 2015

[Hide Comment] I think this is a good overhang warmup really. The holds on the overhang section are juggy, almost gym like, I think its worth a go and its usually always open. Feb 6, 2018
