A bit of a trusty move on a side pull and a sloper foot to get to the first bolt. The middle is fun with side pulls and gastons. Crux is just before the last ledge. There is a bit of fun between the last bolt and the anchors though.

This route can be rock climbed or drytooled. The top is currently kindof dirty and harder than it should be because of that. I will clean it the next time I am there.

I named it Mad Dogs because the day I redpointed it my dog Pele was attacked by another dog. Usually Pele is very submissive and just wants to have lots of friends. I was pretty pissed at the owner of this dog and the dog at first. Eventually the owner came over to apologize. Apparently this puppy use to be a very social dog - until it got hit by a train and almost died. I guess shit happens to dogs that make them hard and cold too.

There is one set of top anchors on the left of this route. It can be toproped and I equip it next summer.


Three routes to the left of Spray, which is the arete to the left of the main ice flow

Cleaned the dirt and sand off a little, but it's still plenty dirty.

Had fun working the crux, even with all the moss.
