Hang Dog Hang Dog ascent by: david_n_raines on 2009-09-06 (View Climbing Log)

5 out of 5 stars ran out of gear

Excellent hand and fist crack.

Flashed crux, then backed off when I realized the second half took almost only #3 Black Diamond-sized gear for the last 30'.

Probably a handful of #3 Black Diamond cams or equivalent hexes would get you through. if you're solid at the grade you may feel comfortable trying to fiddle in other sizes- that's what a much stronger climber in my party had done right before I got on the climb.

Its a 5.9 if you have large hands and can handjam / sidepull the lower half. If you have small hands and have to fistjam and climb straight-on it may get the 5.10b rating some people give it.
