Fun locks, can't muscle this one, technical.


This one pitch variation to "Big Dogs on the Prowl (5.12a)" climbs the enjoyable thin corner above the bolted 5.12a start. Four bolts protect this 5.10 section, which is accessed on the right by a low fifth class ledge system. This corner could be lead on gear with small cams to a #0.5 Camalot, although some of the placements might be tricky/pumpy on lead.

Rap from a 2 bolt anchor with chains....


The variation to Big Dogs on the Prowl starts on a low fifth class ramp system to the right of the 5.12 bolted start.


A #0.75 and #1 Camalot can be placed at the end of the easy ramp....
