Anyone know what this routes real name, grade and FA is?

This route climbs the moderate face climbing start of Bad Dog Crack (5.7) then climbs the arete and face to the right of that route...

A little squeezed in in my opinion seeing as though it shares holds with Bad Dog but it does contain some fun climbing on its independent sections...

Climb the face below the cracked corner and when it is possible break right on to the arete... Climb interesting and fun balancy moves up the arete till it gets too thin to continue at 5.10... Break back left out to the face and climb quartz edges up to the chains...


the bolt line right of the cracked corner of Bad Dog Crack (5.7)...


About 7 bolts and a pin i think it was...

depending on the sequence and when you traverse right on the face the route feels a little bit easier than .10b to me. I'm not good at grades though but I would say 5.9+ or .10a. Apr 21, 2008

Cool sounds good. Yeah this route is not as good as some of the others at the crag, though it's not bad for a warm up for me. I voted for 5.10a because it feels easier than dog star which is also much more fun. Apr 23, 2008

Climbed it this past Saturday, couldn't find it in the book, so checked here. Could be a 10a. A little balancy, but we found it fun and probably more challenging than a 9. My 2 cents. Sep 27, 2009

More fun (varied climbing) and longer than it looks from the ground.
9+ or 10a seems to be the right grade to me (easier than Dog Star). Jun 19, 2010

This FA was actually done by me when I was 10, with my Dad, Brad White. We graded it 10a. Glad some of you guys have enjoyed it and it sounds like 10a is what people agree to be right. Happy Climbing everyone! Jun 20, 2018
