A worth while moderate trad route to practice your skills on... there is a sport route oneither side so you can clip a couple of bolts on your way up to the corner... Stem, fingerlock and hand jam up the corner and pull over the final block to the top...

It works better to not pull over the block and just clip the anchors of Puppy Love (5.9) to the left...


This is the cracked corner that is one of the most obvious features on the left section of the Kennel area as you come up the trail its right in front of you...


Bring a regular rack... Pretty much a hand crack... there is a bolt and a pin low down...

Clip the anchors of one of the sport routes that is very close by or continue to the tree at the top and belay from there...

I did this climb and saw the pin. I recognized the pin as being mine. It is a nice climb. It was climbed between 83-85. We moved right at the end for a white quartz exposed finish. Nov 2, 2009

Brad, you may have climbed this before me, but I put that pin in. It was from another route that got retroed (most likely one of your pins). I don't normally use pins, but thought it was befitting the route.

I'm happy to hear that you climbed it earlier though. Do you remember a name for it? Nov 2, 2009

Hi Mark, I didn't name any short climbs (30-50') of moderate grade up to 5.9. Consequently the multiplicity of my old climbs that are the same climb as some new ascents. My memory is getting old and since you placed the pin (that was the landmark to this ascent being mine) it's all yours Mark. Dec 19, 2009
