5 out of 5 stars Great!

Not as killer as its neighbor to the left, but super fun! There is a fairly substantial runout (about 3 or 4 meters) between the last two bolts. It could have been the wet lichen all over the slopers, but I felt this part to be the mental AND technical crux of the climb.

Hang Dog Hang Dog ascent by: Achilleus30 on 2008-11-10 (View Climbing Log)

4 out of 5 stars Scariest lead I've ever done.

I took a long time trying to find a sequence up the wall before even trying this one (my second 5.11d attempt ever). There was one section where I saw a possible sequence (which didn't work), and another section where I didn't see a sequence at all from the ground. Tried it anyway, and was terrified even hangdogging my way up it. One of the bolts I thought I saw turned out to be a leaf, and there was a 15 foot runout section. I found myself already 10 feet above my bolt moving up on a left hand crimper to a right hand sloper to clip one of the bolts. So there I am almost pissing my pants 15 feet above my bolts with a sloper in one hand and a quickdraw in the other, balanced ever so precariously trying to clip. Thank god I didn't whip. I know, Iknow... I should take up sewing or something.
