Unknown climber on "Mad Dog"

RAIN, WET ROCK and RAPTOR CLOSURES: The sandstone around Moab is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. Also please ask and be aware of Raptor Closures in areas such as CAT WALL and RESERVOIR WALL in Indian Creek MORE INFO >>>

Description 

Mad Dog is to the right of King Cat and left of Bad Cat and Johnny Cat, respectively. Start up the broken blocks and enter the crack. A finger stack crux move or two puts one under the roof for a rest. Pull the roof on splitter thin hands to hands before reaching the anchor. The trick is to milk the small calcite(sp?) edges on the left face.

Protection 

Friends: #1(2), #1.5(4), #2(4), #2.5(2). Good fixed anchor. 80'

A tricky route that feels sequential down low. A smaller piece (yellow) can protect standing up on the ledge to start the crack proper. Take some #1.5 friends and a couple of green camalots. The splitter out the roof fits #1 camalots best. You'll probably only need one #2 camalot for the finish.

This is sooooooo super fun!!! Another one of my faves at this wall. Although not in the same league as Curiosity……. but nothing is.
A few BD#0.5 followed by several BD#0.75, with a BD#1 finish.
