Description

The bolt line to the right of F**king The Dog (5.11d) is somewhat newly bolted and is pretty fun if you like thin cracks and crimping...

Follow the eye bolts along the thin crack up and right... When the crack fizzles out climb straight up on crimps then back left to the anchors...

Location

The bolt line right of F**king the Dog...

Protection

eye bolts to anchor...

I led this route on trad gear, ground up, following the angling thin crack, (part of the reason for the name), to a large block with a crack behind it, (the block has since be removed as it was sketchy loose)I then climbed straight up the face to the pine tree. I bolted the route after several people requested. Sep 30, 2013

This route is fun, and the crux has similar movement to Sky Pilot .11b at the 5.8 Crag. It is certainly easier than that route but the crux movement is similar.

This climb is like climbing a 5.9 face to a good rest then a hard crux move, which is where the .11a grade come from. Sep 20, 2010

There are a couple of big ledges to stand on before the crux if you just take a step off to the right. They allow you to get fully rested before the crux, which then amounts to a quick boulder problem. This one felt quite different than its neighbor to the left, though about equally difficult. Both right on that 10d/11a line, and worth doing. May 18, 2010

there has been some retrobolting in this area so i am only reporting what i have come up with by climbing the route and looking on other sites to figure out what ive climbed... my description describes it the best way i know how... and yes the picture you commented on shows parts of this climb...

or you could just climb all the routes there and then you know you did it :) Apr 15, 2009
