Description 

This is a fun link-up of several different routes that includes an airy traverse to finish on the last pitch of Yellow Ridge. This last pitch of Dog-Stick-Ridge is one of the best pitches of 5.7 the Gunks has to offer!

P1 5.8: Start on The Hounds and climb the chimney. Step right past an overhang and up to a right facing corner with a finger crack. Lieback the crack. Continue upward and to the right to belay in an alcove under a roof.

P2 5.7: Airy fun climbing! Make sure your follower has a camera and ask whoever is at the pitch three belay of Gelsa to take some pictures. Traverse right until you reach the arete. Move around the corner and onto the face to reach the last pitch of Yellow Ridge. Climb up the face and corner and through a notch in the roof above.

Protection 

Standard Gunks rack. Pitch 1 anchor takes finger sized cams (#0.3-0.75 Camalots)
