Hank the Adventure Dog shows the way to the start

A 210 foot, bolted journey to the top of the Marsupial Wall. All three pitches of Adventure Dog offer sustained 5.10 climbing, mostly solid rock, and impressive position...

P1 5.10+ 45ft. 4 bolts. Begin ten feet right of a bolted inside corner (ADHD), and thirty feet to the left of a shrubby little Juniper tree. The crimpy, .10+ action starts immediately and stays sustained for thirty feet, until the angle kicks back and you reach the first anchor at forty five feet. Lower off, belay here, or even better- link this with the second pitch for 35 meters of action.

Variation A, (ADHD 5.10c)- start to the left, on the inside corner.
Variation B- (Old Dog 5.6 R) start 40 feet to the right, just right of the shrubby Juniper, then angle up and left past two bolts.

P2 5.10+ 70ft. 7 bolts. Angle up and left toward a steep corner. Crank up the overhanging corner (crux) and continue directly up the steep and juggy face to a chain anchor. A single, 70m rope reaches the ground from this anchor.

P3 5.10+ 100ft. 8 bolts. Pulls two bulges way off the deck, an epic pitch! Continue straight up and take caution clipping the first two bolts. Make a long reach past the first overhang (crux). Keep motoring on good holds and steep terrain as you angle left while passing the upper bulge. Lower on chains to the anchor atop pitch 2, or continue to the top of the wall and anchor off a Juniper tree.


A prominent, 70-foot fin jutting out from the upper right side of the wall makes a good landmark. Adventure Dog climbs the face to the left of the prominent fin.


Rack of quickdraws. Two rappels from chain anchors with a single, 70m rope.

Great route. If you do the "hank direct" for the first pitch then this route gets 4 stars. The roof on the last pitch has good holds. Lots of fun climbing. Nice work

Great climb with incredible exposure and exciting cruxes. Well worth the slog out there with an amazing view of the park. Avoid on windy days..
