Approach this climb directly from the main trail below. Pass along under the Physical Graffitti formation until you come to a gully heading uphill on your left. As you see the gully, you'll see the climb above- its impossible to miss. Walk off to the left via some scrambling down a fairly well marked trail.

With Peter S. I led it after we were climbing on Clod Tower which was asking for it. Very punchy for the end of the day climb. I was fine once I hit the C4#4 section, the short jig in the wall. Arm bars, knee and foot jams gave me all the rests I needed through the wide stuff. I took 2 4's, a 5 and a 6 but think most folks would prefer to have double 5's and 6's. I had no worries running out the final section off width, but could have used more than 2 3's lower down I think...might have been more 2's, I forget. Small hands early on was the crux for me. Had on OW shoes, would rather have Miuras next time so I can get a better toe in the small crack and let my ankles suffer above. Beautiful climb.
Oh its called the fox not the hang dog hahaha great climb very long... on sight attempt but man I need to work on my crack climbing skills in cracks bigger than my forearms but smaller than my body : ) (a few hangs but I made it up) **Bring a number 6 you'll feel a lot more secure!
