The obvious arete to the right of the Dog House. Great moves up flakes and corners, and even some nice face on the arete up top. An excellent change from the nearby pure crack line of Mr. Clean.


Start on the top of blocks. Below a low roof and just right of the Dog House, a cave formed by a massive block (100 feet tall) leaning against the cliff.


Takes a standard dacks rack to 3 inches. Descent off a two bolt anchor


You can also top this out by climbing the right side of the roof after the bolted anchors at 5.9 Nov 7, 2007

Rafiki's topout is the last pitch of Overdog IIRC, for anyone interested to look more into it. Also I think you can easily get away with a rack from small tcus to a C4 .75 piece. Jul 20, 2009

this climb is 5.8 freaky. Not very fun on lead Aug 3, 2011

haha what makes you say that worth! i kept it together hahaha, although i would, with confidence say that it was easier and felt safer to use the crack to the right of the alcove instead of climbing up into it. (green c4 at the beginning of the crack and make a run for it) Sep 5, 2011

Ate myself a pie and it was delicious. It reminded me of J-tree. It felt spicy but it's actually pretty low-angle. Super fun route!

The bolts were not confidence-inspiring, but there are bomber nuts above. The anchor bolts have some surface rust as well. Aug 26, 2013

Going into the alcove is friggin' hard. Certainly not 5.8. I ate some humble pie that day for sure. Jun 23, 2014

Whew! Going straight up through the notch is tricky/heady (tougher than 5.8 IMO). Get creative with your gear. Once on the arete the climbing is very nice and easier, but it still makes you think in a couple spots! Aug 14, 2014

very interesting climb. The notch is hard to read, the arĂȘte is pure fun, then you get hit with a bit of a puzzle at the top. While it doesn't look well protected from the ground, my partner found decent gear. Jul 4, 2015

Ooooh yeah!
Reminds you what a real 5.8 is like!

spicy heady meatballs, I thought a real classic. And you can climb straight into overdog! Oct 5, 2015
