dylan at the crux of screaming poodle - too secret...


Follow a moderate thin crack with face holds until you reach a bolt then powerful moves on very nice rock lead to the top.


This is the route just left of Too Secret to Find on the northeast face of Hidden Dome. Descend 30 meter rappel from rappel anchor at top of climb.


Stoppers and small cams to 2", one bolt. Bolt anchor at top.

Rock is somewhat questionable down low, although the moves are moderate and fun. The crux up high is powerful and on good rock.

Starts pretty easy and grainy but gets good at the top for an exciting finish. I supplemented the bolt with a few micro pieces, a gray C3 I think.

The top half makes this worthy of a TR if you're trying to tick the crag. Lower section is grainy, grungy and low quality. Top stuff is pretty fun and above the bolt more exciting than it looks from the ground. Worthy for the tick but would discourage the route as your objective.

Traverse in from the left to avoid the worst rock. The crack is pretty easy (5.9? easier?) and low angle, but the placements are sketchy because of the rock quality. Just don't fall. The moves are fun throughout.
