4 out of 5 stars Very fun climb, lots of everything!

Thin slab on the bottom, easy corner climbing above to a very fun roof with huge jugs. Big stretch for this shorty. Fun fun fun.

4 out of 5 stars Fun climb with some runout

This climb was not very difficult if you are comfortable climbing in the 5.8 range. Would not recommend for new leaders because of the sparse gear in a short section right off the ground.

what diversity! The thin not so well protected slab can be scary and the big roof looks intimidating, but the good holds are there.

5 out of 5 stars Ape call

adventure climbing! great route! the crux is sketchy and thin and the roof is airy and awesome! yes, loose blocks in the roof but there are plenty of other holds up there. Be sure to check out the view of the Nears & Millbrook from under the roof, nice perspective. Yay! Followed Scott.

4 out of 5 stars Tricky face

Sure wouldn't want to lead this one! Although I figured it out, it wouldn't be fun to do it on lead. Rest of the climb was great.

Hang Dog Hang Dog ascent by: tigerlilly on 2008-10-07 (View Climbing Log)

4 out of 5 stars A little of everything

Some thin slab, a blocky corner and an overhang. A great big overhang. If you do the feet right, you can get over the overhang with little birdy arms like mine. Ironically, I got over the overhang clean, but slipped and fell on the thin slab section, when usually I am better at those than overhangs. Gotta' call it a hangdog, though. for the one fall.

4 out of 5 stars No Comment

Can't believe this one has not been upgrated. Definitively a "Gunky" route for people with ape arms.
