The dog.


Arapilesian Dog is a cool route with solid rock and fun moves. The crux comes high moving around the corner near the final bolt. Lower down the climbing is not as steep but there is a hard spot that is made easier by stemming onto the boulder out left. One of the best routes I got on at Mazama.


Just to the left of the Sun Deck area on Fun Rock is an orange and white streaked rock that is overhanging. Arapilesian Dog is on this and climbs up and out left of the overhang.

Still a great route! But now has permanent draws, so don't worry about leaving that bail carabiner on the way up!

This route is Fantastic. Very reminiscent of Fear and Loathing in Red Rocks, only better. Deceptive holds leading to the technical crux make it a hard onsite!

According to the guidebook, stemming out to the block/arete of rock out left during the first crux (3-4 draws) lowers the grade. I agree. it's still totally doable without it though.
