4 out of 5 stars I hate snow

Again, I would suggest going to the following website:

The area is difficult to find, I drove in from Franciscan U (Steubenville) and it was a little off the map... That being said, it is indeed a fun route the anchors are safe they are actually inspected every year by the local Boy Scout Troop (they know what they're doing, good climbers amongst them).

Alden and Matt, your some of the riskiest sons of bitches I ever climbed with, but good men.

4 out of 5 stars Fun reachy route.

Sketchy, balancey clips. Very exciting.

Hang Dog Hang Dog ascent by: Achilleus30 on 2008-06-07 (View Climbing Log)

3 out of 5 stars I would not have even gotten the hangdog, but for a stranger's beta.

Tough route. The first clip is a little sketchy, but your feet are only 5' off the ground, so it's not that bad. Then the first crux is moving past that clip by traversing with your hands on small holds and figuring out how to position your body to utilize a nice flake above and to the left of the first bolt. Clipping the second bolt is just balancey, but you have a nice undercling on which to do it. You clip the third bolt from a solid hold, but you have bad or no feet. Then standing up to clip the fourth bolt is the real crux. I kept trying to mantle on, and stand up on the ledge somehow, but you have to do a pushup onto it, with your right leg on the previous clipping hold, then shift your body way way to the right, and grab the arete. Then you can stand up fairly easily, but I spent a long time trying to solve the problem without getting it, so it's not so intuitive. I also remember a friend of mine, a strong climber, asking me whether I had ever tried it, and if I had any beta on it. I'm assuming he had the same troubles as me with it, but without the benefit of a stranger's beta. Lena_Chita is absolutely right about short people having to do an all points off dyno for the hold required to get to the anchors. I am 6'1" and I had to find a couple of points a few inches higher up to move my feet to, and then stand on tip toes to reach that hold.

3 out of 5 stars If it's 5.11a, then I am a Chinese Emperor!

Doable, but height-dependent as most of Logtown routes. For 5ft midgets, this route has all-points-off dyno at the last bolt before the anchors.
