Showing the starts of Buddha and Walk the Dog


this is a one move wonder 12, climb up to the ledge begin out and over super thin buldge using some small crimps, lockoff strength and some a toss/dyno to a jug ledge/rail. at this point your joining the route walk the dog (11-) and is probably easy 10 from here on out...


on the right side of wall right by the big tree. the right most route on this wall is Walk the Dog which shares bolt 4, the piton and chains with Buddha.


4 bolts, 1 piton + chains

The route has 4 bolts and one piton. Many (most?) folks don't clip the piton as it takes an extra effort midway through the move from above the #4 bolt.

This video begins after the 5.12a crux with the 3rd bolt clipped. The climber clips #4 but does not clip the piton. Nice catch!
