3 out of 5 stars The Hounds

Got it clean, fell trying to lead this back in 2009. Certainly NOT 5.10-, this is easily mid-ten climbing. In addition to being downright hard, the crux is cryptic, sequential, and committing. Giving it a pg13 because I'm not thrilled with either piton...but they have held me before. A fun climb that is usually open on even the busiest of days.

I took one fall on the two old pins: amazing that they held. This route offers continuous climbing that takes you some distance away from your protection. It's definitely not 5.10a
