This route shares the first bolt with Roofus, then splits off left up the finger crack below Roofus's second bolt. Follow the short finger crack to a final bolt and some tricky finishing moves. Clipping the chains is the crux.


Same start as Roofus; 15 feet right of The Dogcatcher.


Draws for the two bolts and the chains. Two or so finger-sized cams for the crack between bolts. FYI - it's possible to clip the second bolt of Roofus with a long sling if it makes you feel better.

A better route than Roofus, IMO. Really cool second half of the climb, if you have a few fingery cams.
