Gofur starts left of P1 of Yellow Dog Dingo. Climb the easy slab to the rib. Follow the bolts up the rib (5.8 thin). Pull right onto the shoulder that leads to the corner of the big roof. The lip of the roof has fat buckets: go for it. Stand up above the roof & clip the double bolt anchor. Connecting to Yellow Dog P2 is easy from here, or lower off.


It is immediately left of Yellow Dog Dingo.


Per Jay Eggleston: 10 bolts.

Bolts for the harder moves were upgraded to 3/8" SS Power-stud on Aug. 7 2016.
I'll get the rest on the next trip.

This has ten bolts if anyone is wondering. The crux is at the last bolt. Big jugs but overhanging.

I thought the slab move clipping the 4th bolt (?) was the crux. Very low-angle but thin and a miniscule clipping hold.

Fun route! I think the "rib" in the route description is the diagonal slabby bulge you can see that has a ladder of bolts right up the middle.

The slab section at the 4th bolt is a little thin to be 5.8. I just climbed a few 5.10s over at Catslab 4 days ago. There is something off between this 5.8 rating and the climbs over at Catslab. At the slabby section, it looks like people are "improvising" to the right by the amount of chalk on the rock.
