Description

This is really a linkup of Li'l Dog to Snoopy, but it is a reasonable addition for those choosing to warmup more gently or for those wanting something mellow with a slight Black Canyon feel to it. Darren Mabe lists this in his excellent guidebook.

Start on the 2nd from the left set of bolts. Ascend up on big holds with longer reaches with the crux around the 4th bolt stepping up and slightly right. Then glide into easy terrain below the roof. There are multiple exits to the left to link up with the upper bolts of Snoopy into the fun stemming to the anchors.

Location

Start on the 2nd from the left set of bolts and cut left before the Li'l roof above.

Protection

12-13 bolts, though you may wind up blowing right past a few bolts as you get into cruise mode.

Of course there are always the variations.... Start on Snoopy and finish on the Li'l Dog crux and you've done Snoop Dog. Dec 9, 2009

Nice route with good sun for cooler weather. Where you jog left from Li'l Dog to Snoopy, it helps to use a couple runners to extend the last clip on Dog and first clip on Snoopy. Or endure a little runout by heading left off Dog one bolt lower. If not clear when looking up from the ground, these choices become obvious as you approach the roof on Dog. Dec 9, 2009
