BETA PHOTO: Approx Line to Rover B. Dog. I know the pic isn't ...


Sloping crimps and marginal side pulls get you to the heart of the matter with a final blast up crimps to the finish.


Starts about 10' left of Drillers.


Five bolts, stainless shuts.

Rover B. Dog was a sweet, local stray who was named by Bob Surber in the very early days of Obed development. Eventually he had his own dog bowl (kept at the crag) and a route was named for him. Inevitably, another stray started coming along and he and Rover would fight. One day the other stray was found dead at the base, and the locals split into two camps: those who thought Rover pushed the other stray to his death, and those who could not imagine the possibility.

Paul I can't believe you remember the story.... but it is now legend. The "other" dog's name was Sport but you forgot about the dark and sinister third dog "Trad." Conspiracy theory has it that this 3rd dog actually pushed Rover over the edge to his death.

5.10 sport climbs are usually junk. This one is great.
