4 out of 5 stars Bouldery direct straight up start but super fun

Lead the route which protects really well. Set a solid TR with 1 in cams at the top.

2 out of 5 stars Don't waste time on this one

Only the beginning and the traverse to the left leaning crack were good. I wonder if route has changed overtime. Much more difficult than 11a even on TR. Perhaps it has crumbled overtime.
TR with Neil and Eileen after Popular Mechanics.

5 out of 5 stars must do after Ace of Spades

Route felt a little bit easier (less sustained) than Ace, but very fun nonetheless. Climbed after Ace makes this combo well worth the approach. Route has rap rings.

5 out of 5 stars Great route away from crowds

Nobody nearby on a perfect Saturday afternoon. A small nut followed by a high .75 will get you safely past the crux to a bomber rest spot to place your next cam/nut.
Super fun double crack that protects very well higher up.

5 out of 5 stars What a hard route

Lead P1, and followed everything else clean except for the 10d where I slipped and scraped my left fingers pretty good pass the chimney.
Second pitch was the money pitch with amazing finger locks everywhere. Crux was sustained and heady but good holds are there to be found; keep moving.

4 out of 5 stars Great route

Done in two pitches with a 70m.
Crux was definitely getting started on the chimney. I was glad I was wearing knee-pads for a solid knee/arm bar aproach. (First pitch was the best part)

5 out of 5 stars wide part is spooky

Great way to finish the day after rapping from the Sorcerer.

Hang Dog Hang Dog ascent by: leoand23 on 2016-09-15 (View Climbing Log)

5 out of 5 stars Intimidating crux

Linked P1-P2 (I led) with a 70m then moved over to finish on Spooky (Greg led).
First portion of P1 felt awkward. The crux near the top have a flared thin moves at the top. I was one move away from getting the on-sight, but ran out of stem an had to hang. Perhaps is best to climb P1 and P2 separate to conserve energy if climbing near your limit.

5 out of 5 stars Awesome as advertised

We did the route by (70m + 10ft simul) linking P1-P2 from Igor (I lead), and then linking P3 - P4 (Greg lead) from Airy Interlude. The traverse was fun and a little heady but not too bad the jams are very solid and there are features for your feet. Fun warmup route however, not a beginner's route.

5 out of 5 stars Difficult crux

I tried on TR and placing gear to get ready for the sent. Pumped out at the crux and ran out of gas. I will have to come back for the red point.
