This isnt the real name of the route but i have no info on it... If anyone knows the name grade and FA of this one let me know... Otherwise I'll update it when the updated guide comes out some day... I just thought it should be included...

On the far left of the cliff is a bolt line up a low angle face leading to an arete and a cool steep finish... the climbing is thought provoking and enjoyable...


Far left side of kennel wall...


6 bolts to quick clips...

I really enjoyed this route. 5.6 moves but some reachy clips for shorter people so be careful if you're leading. I agree with the thought provoking, don't go into it thinking you're going to blaze an easy route. Apr 21, 2009

I carry a biner of stoppers and used Stoppers at the end of this climb. I had increased protection to go left hang and pull up to the top. Nuts and bolts made a big difference to how we finished this exciting moderate climb. Jun 10, 2009

This route is surprisingly fun, the crux is right before the roof at the top, if you stem and climb on the wall to the right it is 5.6 but if you do not use that wall, it is much harder than 5.6. Awesome route though. Nov 9, 2009

Another great route from Smitty. Awesome moderate. Not sure why I waited so long to climb it Jul 8, 2018
