Gate Buttress Area Recreational Lease: Climbs on Church Buttress above vault remain closed MORE INFO >>>


Awesome route with great bolting on bomber quartzite but bring the pump repellent as the climbing is continuously vertical, crimpy, and technical for such a short route. There are some key holds that are hard to identify from the ground due to the swirled nature of the rock, so do your best to read it in advance, but realize you may have to do a little on-sighting while on route. And just when you think you've crimped enough, voila!, an interesting undercling and some better holds finish things off. Well worth the hike just for this one route but there are plenty of other interesting ones right nearby.


Find your way to the main wall of the Humane Society Area. The main wall is the northwest facing wall at the top of the talus field and it is also the furthest wall to the west. Fido is located between the routes Humane Society (10.b mixed) on the left and Sick Puppies (12.b sport) on the right. It shares a first bolt with Humane Society before breaking right. Fido is directly above a water seep frequented by wasps (which seemed to leave us well enough alone). There is a ramp angling up and right from which you can execute the start moves if you choose not to tempt the wasps with a more direct start.


5 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor with chains. No additional gear required.

Best 5.11 at the crag. Well bolted and cryptic; lots of fake-out holds that look good but actually suck.
