This is an obscure climb and it shows. This has a mossy start, a little poor rock, and is awkward throughout. Some of the movement, however, is good and redeems the climb and the effort.

Climb in from left and below the crack, up and into a leaning, steep corner, and out and right over the lip, then up and left to the summit.


Find a zig-zag wide crack on the north end of 'The Pup.'


My notes from years back say: "#5 Camalot + 0.75" and 1" below." I don't think I had wide gear, so that #5 is a guess. The Haas book states rack to #4 Camalot - but circa 2008 notes he was referring to pre-C4 sizing.
