DescriptionOrignally done as a 5.11 A0 route this route was later freed and named after Dave's dog which seems appropriate as you need to tap the animal inside to succeed on this technical line.
Easy moves gain the first bolt and then it's on as you negotiate the super thin crimps and sparse feet of the barely vertical crux which is more like a V5 boulder problem. Once past the crux the difficulty eases and it's no harder than 5.11 to the top.
A decent route but it's a brief crux, the rock is not the best and it's sorely lacking in continuity which merits it a star at best.
