Description:

This is the furthest left route in the alcove. This route defines American Fork sport climbing. A bouldery start leads to a technical face and slab above. Absolutely Classic!

Hang Dog Hang Dog ascent by: belikerk on 2010-09-18 (View Climbing Log)

5 out of 5 stars close!

had to hang once at the middle section, easily passed the start but it was a trick in the middle. The solution was getting my foot higher, after that hang I completed the climb without anymore falls, the top section is insane though! greasy slopers and crimps, way fun. I'll be back for the redpoint

4 out of 5 stars Tough!

Wow! This is one tough route, especially when compared to Eight to Eleven's second pitch. (Granted, I'm kinda weak-sauce and my forearms aren't as strong as I'd like...). It's a fun climb though for sure. I'm going to have to go back and do it again. Hangdogging just doesn't do it justice.

Red Point Red Point ascent by: briankorale on 2000-05-05 (View Climbing Log)

5 out of 5 stars Classic!

Many partners I've gone with prefer to stack up a few rocks to stand on to get started, although I've never had to. You would think the 1st move is the hardest, but for me, the crux is near the top right where it changes from jug pulling to technical. Even though I flashed Juggernaut, Suicide Blonde took me over 5 visits to red-point. Very deserving of the grade.....Kind of a short route, only 6-8 bolts, I think.
