Description

Nice face climbing for the first 2 bolts brings you into the slabby section. Make some committing moves for the next 2 bolts and you'll be rewarded with a great jug. After the last bolt there's a ramp of smooth rock with a couple good foot holds. This ramp looks like a ledge when looked at from the ground. Go up the ramp and you're at the anchor.

Location

On the right side of the crag, just left of Raven

Protection

5 bolts to quick clips

One of my favorites. Nice climbing down low on ledges that look a litttle bit better than they are, to a balance crux with interesting one and two finger pockets. Topped off with an easy, but thoughtful and fun finish. If this climb is open and I'm walking past it, I always stop to climb it.

Also, though it's a mellow grade and the first bolt is down low, I usually stick clip: that landing is ugly and the start can be tricky! Sep 20, 2013

The name is wrong. It was named "The Moe Pup Sensation".

It was named after a dog named Mowgli, who happened to also go by the name "The Moe Pup Sensation"

The FA's name is spelled Keith Becconsall.

Thanks.
