Pug Love: May 2012


5.6 G - Start to the right of the tree on the left side of the wall. Follow right leaning crack for a move, then straight up.


1 minute uphill from the Sports Arena is a pair of walls split by a class 4 gully. Pug love starts behind a tree close to the left side of the left of these walls. Rappel down.


Fixed anchor at top. Mostly small gear. Challenging lead IMO for the grade but fun because of it.

I didn't find it very challenging. The start is bouldery but the big flake holds make it a hero move. The rest of it is just a moderate angle face with plentiful gear options. Until the top out. I went up the vertical (left leaning) crack in the center (right of the bolts). All was good until final moves out, which involved slab friction on the left foot and a sloped ledge mantel with the hands. Nothing positive to grip. I think exiting left or right of this would be much easier, but the gear is good at the top, so it's an interesting exit.
