BETA PHOTO: Climber right before the short roof crux

Located in a National Forest Fee Area MORE INFO >>>


A great route on a good wall, Chilly Dogs starts off burly working its way past a few bolts, up and around a large roof. Stick with it and gain a quick rest. Delicate climbing past another small roof leads to a steep and solid head wall. Long pulls over great rock, finish on a nice ledge.


Chilly Dogs sits heavy on the left side of the crag. It is the second bolted route from the left and is easily recognized by its large, intimidating roof.


Eight bolts to an anchor.

Great holds up high. Really cool features.

Yesterday was my first visit to this crag. I was slightly disappointed by all the lichen on the routes, but they were still pretty fun. However, I started up this route and found it much, much, harder than 5.10c if you follow the bolt line. Is the proper beta meant to go left between the 3rd and 4th bolt? Or is it to follow the tough crack between the bolts?

Some of the holds were pretty messy, but the route was really fun. I don't think this route was any harder than a 5.10c. That felt about right. The two anchors at the top were uneven so make sure to take a sling to even out the drag between the two anchors. Happy Climbing!

I left my Grigri at this wall on July 23, 2016. If found, please contact me here. I would love to have it back and would be so grateful upon its return. This is an orange Grigri 2 with an orange Petzl locking carabiner.

I'm tall which made the start very awkward and unpleasant (or maybe I was tired?) Anyway, you may want to stick clip the 2nd bolt if you can...
