"This is the second to the right of four bolted lines on Hidden Wall" It's the third from the left.....or second from the right. The crux overlap is tricky, but very well-protected, with the bolt above your waist when you do the move. Above that it's about 5.6 to the top. Jan 9, 2013

Cool side pull at the crux... Fun but over with way to soon. Still worth hoping on! Mar 8, 2014

Seems the crux can be skinned many different ways including the side pull as the above poster mentioned, high step or for me, a backwards mantle that worked like a dream. Very worthwhile climb for the wall, thanks guys. Quality of rock above has some hollow sounding flakes but their not really used and probably more solid then they sound. Safe and fun climbing.....

Tried to climb this yesterday. Climbed Private Eye and thought it was a lot of fun ad super clean. Moved over to give Rodeo Doggie a shot and was stumped at the roof. Where is the side pull, is it the flake off to the left of the roof? I can see where it could be mantled but at this point in the day I was feeling gassed and though I would leave it for another day and a fresh set of eyes. I'll be back. Mar 4, 2016

Kevin.......i too thought that roof move was way hard. When i was there ....some of my friends were floating it...while others were struggling and/or failing. John Long was there, and was swearing it was 5.11!...... Mar 5, 2016

I did this route yesterday with some friends. I can say this was a rather fun route. The roof stumped everyone- but we all sended. The trick is to smear with the left foot high on the lip-on the left side- rock up onto your toe/ankle and mantle it with the right hand. There is a great little ledge to mantle on if you can get your left foot/leg up. I was stumped until my buddy told me. Nov 6, 2017
