Description

If this route could only continue for another 100 feet!! In just 50 short feet, this route packs a collective punch. It commences with an undercling move off a shark tooth feature, then some strenuous crack climbing, followed by a balancy traverse left, thin and technical face climbing and one final move to, and then out of, a pocket that guards the chain anchors.

It is very easy to become addicted to this route's exquisite flow!

Location

Locate the unmistakeable arete and roof of Dog Biscuit. F**king the Dog starts on an easy slab below a vertical face just to the right.

Protection

5 bolts.

I wasn't sure who the first ascent party was, so if someone knows, please post it. Thanks! Apr 24, 2007

Ted Hammond lead it first, if I remember right, on gear and pins. When I cleaned and retroed it(with permission), it became a little easier as a chunk came out and made the pocket like hold near the top.

Nice and surprisingly pumpy face climbing. Just wish it kept going Apr 17, 2009

Very good route.
Felt more challenging than Big Angler (11a route to the right of this one), Tool Time (10d up at Pulse crag), and Debbie (11a down at Lower New Wave).

Small holds; bring your best technique. Jun 19, 2010

Yes, IMHO, 11a for this route is consistent with current grading for Big Angler, Tool Time, and Debbie does CPR. 2.5 stars. Jul 31, 2010

Pure sustained beta, clip to clip all the way up- last day of the season, couldn't have been happier ticking this route Nov 25, 2013

Another stiff one for the grade at Kennel.... not crazy stiff but pumpy indeed and it's easy to go wrong, especially up top. I guess it feel like hard for the grade partly because it's so short - it needs to deserve its mark a in shorter number moves! It does indeed in the end.

Fun one, well worth doing. Bring all your tech, crimp & precise footwork. Sep 3, 2017
