The Purrrfect Puppy is the 2nd bolted line from the right. It looks a little junky from the ground, but it is actually really fun. The bottom is still a little dirty, but it should clean up nicely. The top 2/3 is on clean, featured rock.

Puppy now has a 2nd pitch: Top Dawg.
I posted it separate from this route so the consensus grade wouldn't make people think this pitch is harderÂ….


Head right a little when the trail reaches the base of the wall. The start is about 20 feet left of Stray Cat.


7 bolts (black hangers) and a 2 bolt anchor. A shoulder length runner on the first bolt is helpful.

Climbed this again today, and the easiest start is right of the first bolt. The rock seemed solid today, and the rest of the route did as well. Oct 23, 2015

Rock quality warning:

I climbed this route by starting a little left of the first bolt. Looked just as solid and a little more difficult. Judging by chalk, it looks like most go the easier path a little right of the first bolt. I had a rock the size of two loaves of bread break off in front of my face. I fell just a few feet on my side and tumbled down 10 feet until being stopped by a lovely cactus. Somehow I am unharmed besides some cuts and bruises. Long story short, the rock quality isn't great (we all know that), but climb near the bolt line. Jan 25, 2015

Better rock and a better line than Stray Cat (I'm a dog person). A few holds look thin and sketchy, but they didn't budge when I tried to break them. Nice warm-up pitch before tackling the 10b short second pitch (Top Dawg). Oct 31, 2014

This route is easy but is really fun and is a good warm up for the wall. Oct 1, 2014
