Rockfax Description
A direct on Bloodhound. Start just right of the crack-line of Kennel Wall. Climb direct to a flake (on Bloodhound) and move up it and the wall above to a sloping ledge. From the left end of the ledge, move up to a corner then step right and finish up the right-hand of two cracks. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
A fairly serious eliminate left of Bloodhound. Some good climbing but not in the same league as its neighbour. Climb just right of Kennel Wall past minimal protection to gain the Bloodhound flake and sloping ledge above. Climb the groove above on good holds but hollow rock to reach more conventional ground and a thin crack finish.

βeta: No gear to very poor gear, with a lot of time spent in groundfall territory from high on the route. Basically, gear low in Kennel Wall and then no reliable gear until you gain the top groove. E3 5c? E4 5c? I'm not sure how to grade chop routes. Pleasant to second.
