Description 

Thin, sharp pockets mark the start of this route.

Start right of the bolt line and move up and left towards the giant flake over the roof. Pull the roof while trying to clip the next bolt to the right and not worrying about the sketchy flake ;) Get established at a stance before the thinness kicks in hard. Pick a line (think of dualing side-pulls) and punch it through to the broken flake-edge up and to the right. Keep it cool to the top.

Location 

This route is located on the left side of a section of wall near the middle of the Hound Dog Crag. The wall is marked by a roof that tapers in width toward both sides of the wall section. It is to the left of Otter Hound, which is a 5.12+ that takes the right side of the roof on this wall.

Protection 

Twelve bolts to a two-bolt anchor.
