Description

P1. Climb a couple of moves to a large, diagonal ledge/gully. Go up the right wall onto 20 feet of vertical 5.8 climbing with fun, orangutang jugs to another ledge. Continue up to just under the juniper tree and the double bolt anchor. It's exposed 5.2 from here over & down (east) to the start of the rest of Other Critters.

P2. Climb right & behind the tree onto the buttress. Once established on the buttress above the tree, it's easy climbing & great views up to the double bolt anchor, 4 bolts, 50 feet. It's easy to reach P2 of Yellow Dog Dingo from here.

Location

Walk 70 feet past the start to P0 of Yellow Dog Dingo along the lower tier of rock. Find the start in a small alcove behind the large bush.

Protection

Bolts: 8 for P1, 4 for P2.

These were upgraded to 3/8" SS Power-Studs on Aug. 7, 2016.

I think this is implicit in the route description, but just to be explicit, this route starts from the lower ledge, below the main ledge where most of the other routes start. The juniper tree described at the end of Clyde's first pitch is the juniper tree at the far left side of the main belay ledge. Jan 31, 2016

This pitch is fun, but I think it is only a 5.6 in difficulty. I combined the two pitches and did a single rap down. I have a 70m rope, but a 60m one would work to descend in one rap. May 25, 2015

This can be easily be made into a solid 3-4 pitch route by connecting the 2nd pitch of Clyde to the 2nd pitch of Dingo. The first pitch felt about .8 to me, and be sure to link with the Horn Pipes variation (~.8+) to add some great exposure. Mar 22, 2015
