Description

Get full value out of the wall without the shenanigans required of The Gardener. This climbs all the way through the crux of DOF, then heads left through crux of Nettle, passing TS en route to the Tuco finish. Gave it its own name, both named after dogs that passed away this year (2010), because it's got to be one of the best pitches in Big. 70' of consistent steep climbing and great rock. It's an absolutely stunning route. Grade's a little soft but it just seems worth more than the others. Just take it and enjoy.

I could have bolt counts wrong but I think it's 4x on DOF, through crux, where you can hit a big side pull out left and head straight up into the crux of Nettle. Do this to a shake above, then traverse to TS. A little run out but pretty easy climbing to a shake. Then head up the Tuco finish. I think it's 10x's of steep climbing. Rare in this canyon.
