DOG BREATH VARIATIONS 5.7/A0 *** (160’') M (3b)
This route up the prominent corner system on the right side of the upper NW face is a classic 5.7 trad climb - except for the bolt ladder getting past the lower roof (probably can be led free at 5.10). Begin at the base of the corner about 15'’ below the Serviceberry alcove (single ring anchor – also useful as a rap point if the lower slabs are wet or dark, to access the belay anchors at the top of Aqua Vitae). From the alcove, climb the bolt ladder at the left side of the roof until it’s possible to traverse right into the crack. Continue up the main corner until it’s possible to traverse right into the smaller corner (about 20'’ above the mid rap anchors). Rap/belay anchors are stationed half way up and on top. A wide range of cams and nuts are needed.
