Description

Continuing with the tradition of canine-inspired route names, Dog Biscuit is so aptly named because (from as far as I can glean) it is quite a tasty treat for rock aficionados!

This route climbs the left, then the right side of the striking arete/roof via technical and satisfying moves.

Begin on the face directly below the arete with a ramp-like feature to your right. Ascend up, then make a couple exciting moves left beneath a low roof to a mantle shelf. Next, climb up the orange face, trending right until you are on good, but not great, holds beneath the right side of the roof. Look right around the corner once you are below the roof and clip a bolt. Make an exciting step around right onto the upper face and climb to the top. You'll encounter the crux right before the chains. Note to climber: Not all paths between two points are straight, especially those connecting the final bolt to the anchor!!

Location

The unmistakable arete/roof at the lowest point on the cliff. Can be seen when approaching from the climbers trail.

Protection

7 bolts.
