  • Description 

    This small chunk of rock sits snugly at the base of the East face of Seal Rock. It is almost part of Seal Rock, but there is a narrow gully separating them on the northwest side. This is a great addition for those ascending the East face of Seal Rock.

    Getting There 

    Approach as for Seal Rock. The Pup is directly in front of the East face of Seal Rock.

    East Face 4th 1 2 I 2 M 1b  Colorado : Flatirons : ... : The Pup
    This scramble is a great addition to an ascent of Seal Rock. Start in the center of the East face. Follow a hand crack past a large tree until it finishes. Hop left into an off-width crack, skip up this until it ends, then jump up the remaining slab on in-cut jugs. To descend, either scramble off north, downclimb the route, or loop your rope around one of the large smooth protrusions of rock and make a single rappel in any direction....[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado
