One of the four routes in the popular Dogmatism Quartet. Solid face climbing that starts with a pull up the little roof at ground level. Crux is at the bulge near the top, go left.


Line of bolts near a tree right when you approach from Lower Red Tail. Starts with a heave up over a little roof at ground level. Left of Basic Black and right of Facility.


8 bolts, chain anchor.

Great fun, gradually increases in difficulty all the way to the top. I found the first bolt a little airy for the committing nature of the direct start, traversing in from the right on good hands seems a less nervy approach.
