A worthwhile link up combining several parts of existing routes. This exciting route weaves its way through roofs to top out at a moderate grade. Start as for Hounds on the right of a detached block. p. 1 (5.8, 90 feet) Chimney up the block to a stance. Step across to the wall, passing a small roof (crux). Move up a colorful open book until progress is impeded by a roof. Traverse right to a nose, then step right into the corner of Fat Stick. Climb easily to near its top and exit right. Continue up a short layback crack to a small but comfortable stance in an alcove under a roof. p. 2 (5.6, 70 feet) Make the exciting hand traverse right using the excellent horizontal. Once on the arete move up to join Yellow Ridge to the top.

4 out of 5 stars Dog-Stick-Ridge

This excellent link up stayed under my radar for too long, just swapped leads on it with rc user ambler. The second pitch is definitely the highlight.
