Crux near the bottom. Most end the route when they clip the anchors, but you can also climb past them through the roof. Some guides rate at 5.12a, but the general consensus seems to be 5.11d.

5 out of 5 stars Amazing

Wow so this route deserves at least a paragraph. Fun boulder problem guards the bottom of the route and will not allow for the send if your bouldering skills aren't up to snuff. The rest of the route follows the traditional jug haul pattern. Heel hook where possible, hold onto and start slipping on jugs while your hands sweat in the heat. Clipping the chains from the hole in the ceiling isn't quite as easy as it looks. I did this and Yertle the Turtle on the same day. Yertle took two tries, this took 4 tries over as many days since this is not as much my style. Solid (maybe even upper end?) 5.11d. Get on this route a lot if you want to get better at rock climbing.

Hang Dog Hang Dog ascent by: kvochatzer on 2010-04-04 (View Climbing Log)

3 out of 5 stars awkward throwing gaston...

or you can hit it with the left hand and match with the right instead. I power hang dogged this one and then guess I didn't have the gas on second run because I just kept blowing my feet off after snatching the flake. Will return. It's a fun climb.
