Nate Erickson at the crux. May, 2014.


Work the first set of 3 drill holes on left side of diagonals wall. Pretty hard to link moves together. One move 5.11/12 move depending on height, then a couple 5.11's and the rest is easy.

UPDATE: 10/22/15: Crux hold broke off this year. Not sure what the rating is but probably in 12 range. I added bolt to crux.

Named after Joe's awesome German Shephard crag dog. Calm, didn't bug other climbers, didn't bark, didn't eat other people's food, didn't bark at other dogs, didn't hunt and kill wildlife. Joe could just look at him and Nick would just know what to do, like move to avoid a falling rope. That dog read a climbers mind. Miss him.

Prefer no drytooling here. Drytooling destroys routes. Tradition is to use web anchors and trad gear
if you really need to drytool. Bolts are for sport climbers. Let's save these climbs for YOUR kids. Thanks. Dreez

Fell off this thing today before clipping the second bolt and bruised my foot pretty bad on a mini-ledge below. Now I'm thinking that working this one on toprope first might be a good idea for those of us who are unlikely to onsight at the grade.

Oh man, sorry. I will try and put another bolt in here and on Multiple Sax Partners. Thanks for info

Dreez, awesome job with the bolting here an on Sax Partners. Both are comfortable cruxes now.

Not sure where the hold broke off but it definitely feels harder than 11b, at least to OS. Maybe 11c or so?
