A really fun route with surprisingly technical moves, Doggy Style climbs up neat looking "bubbly, flowing" rock. The crux is on crimps and a right hand rail that is sloping, but cool lock offs and fun moves keep you enjoying the route the whole way through.

The above description appears to fit the route "Dog House" instead of Doggy Styllin' (the correct name of this route). Instead, I'd recommend:

A fun and techie route with fun moves that unlock with the right sequences. Start on powerful crimps off the ground below the first bolt, or alternatively take the delicate sequence starting a few feet left. Heads up getting to the second bolt since the first is very low (stick clipping the 2nd is a good idea). The crux will be obvious after a big rest, and can be done a number of ways with very mellow falls. 11c to the first anchor.
There are two extensions: a) up and left is steep and juggy (5.9) followed by a couple tricky face moves up high (5.10). b) Up and right past the first anchor through a steep bulge is "Full Doggy Style".


Doggy Stylin' starts where the trail intersects K9 crag, just right of the rock slope with a low first bolt.

I don't know if something has broken but the start to this felt harder than any move on Arapilesian Dog. After that the rest of the route was pretty sustained with some distinct cruxes. I believe the route continues up past the ledge on to dirtier rock with another short but hard 5.11 crux. Jun 1, 2017

The full route crosses the ramp and ascends a section of powerful lock offs on good in cut holds, finishing straight up at the top of the cliff, which is also the "salon finish" for bigwig. First section 11c, full line just a bit harder at 11c/d Jul 12, 2017
