Hang Dog Hang Dog ascent by: IsayAutumn on 2010-10-10 (View Climbing Log)

5 out of 5 stars Fantastic route, and a bit intimidating

I led the first pitch, my partner then led the 2nd pitch of Antline and the 3rd pitch of Intimidation. I fell at the upper crux, after I had already made the move! Doh! Anyway, the fall was 20-25 feet onto a bolt. I had used a Screamer on the bolt (it was rusty and had a strange hanger), and it deployed! I should have flashed this pitch easily, but I'll take the Hang Dog like a man.

5 out of 5 stars Sweet route!

The first pitch is a little intimidating, but this is well worth it. Probably the best pitch was p 3.

Onsight Onsight ascent by: lucander on 2008-10-11 (View Climbing Log)

4 out of 5 stars Intimidation

A fine route with good crack climbing on just about every pitch - go to the top to claim an ascent on this continuously challenging climb. First pitch takes really good gear but be able to lock off to place if you're only 5'5" and have too much dignity to bring a stick up a route. Belay ledge on the third pitch is comparable to that lovely ledge on the Book of Solemnity.

5 out of 5 stars Unbelievably hard

P1 is tricky to say the least. I taped a stopper on a stick to place and protect the crux. All previous pieces are marginal...well okay, not bomber. The corner is a grunt, the final moves; devious. P4 was awkward..or I was off kilter the whole way...I teetered up it.

4 out of 5 stars fun

Blew the crux, so no onsight, but had a blast leading P1 and P3. Lots of great climbing on this one. Totally drained by the end.
