Chilly Dogs

5.10c, Sport, 75 ft,  Avg: 2.7 from 14 votes
FA: Brian Smoot, Brian Cabe, 6/27/02
Utah > Uinta Mountains > Cliff Lake
Access Issue: Located in a National Forest Fee Area Details


A great route on a good wall, Chilly Dogs starts off burly working its way past a few bolts, up and around a large roof. Stick with it and gain a quick rest. Delicate climbing past another small roof leads to a steep and solid head wall. Long pulls over great rock, finish on a nice ledge.


Chilly Dogs sits heavy on the left side of the crag. It is the second bolted route from the left and is easily recognized by its large, intimidating roof.


Eight bolts to an anchor.

[Hide Comment] Some of the holds were pretty messy, but the route was really fun. I don't think this route was any harder than a 5.10c. That felt about right. The two anchors at the top were uneven so make sure to take a sling to even out the drag between the two anchors. Happy Climbing! Jul 20, 2014

[Hide Comment] I'm tall which made the start very awkward and unpleasant (or maybe I was tired?) Anyway, you may want to stick clip the 2nd bolt if you can... Aug 19, 2016
