Dingo The Gringo 5.10c (Sport) ***

First Ascent: Jared Hancock, Karla Carandang, Mark Ryan, Jenny Wagner in 2005
Length: 45ft
Bolts: 5 (report bad bolts/anchors)

Click for more images
Walk out onto the ledge 30 feet right of the pinnacle. This is the furtherest sport route to the right. There is also a belay bolt here. Look up for the flake feature then solve the sequence with a tricky move or two to reach the high first bolt. Float, fly, or flow up the flake and then jog the easy slab to the anchors above. Some other pitches may continue up and out the steep roofs in the future...
Moves: Slab
Descent: Ring Anchor
Stays Dry: Light rain
Owner: Muir Valley

fun climb but not very sustained, the bottom is great, technical climbing but the top gets really easy, dont hear me wrong, i am not complaining i LOVE a nice easy finish, after i have pumped out with 2 moves this old man needs a jug haul or super slabby finish, very fun climb. the belay bolt is great idea too, good thinking. my better half didnt climb this route this weekend, guess we worked her to hard on trail day??? or maybe she is jsut a baby!!! ,,, hope she doenst read this....

True, the route to the left is much better.

One move wonder. Wish there were more. Top is no hands slab.

it may just be a couple move route but those moves are pretty cool. not a three star route but worth getting on just for the first 3 bolts.

Like others said, the bottom few moves are VERY burly and hard, but once you get that, it's smooth sailing up and over the lip and finish up on the slab. Pretty good route, not very sustained or interesting though. Wish there was more to it than the bottom section. It's worth doing even though the route is basically a few moves.

I can think of many RRG 5.11s that don't have a single move as hard as the move at the first bolt (but some of it was height-dependent for sure, b/c I'm 5' even). But the rest of the climb is something like 5.5, so you can't seriously call it anything harder than 5.10c.

What the others said. Curious what the need for the last bolt before the anchor was. I have a horrible lead head, but did not bother clipping it.

Forgettable route, not worth the time IMO. Only get on it if every other climb has lines 3 or 4 deep. Probably not worth it then. Nap is better choice...

Not worth the time.

Not as bad as I was lead to believe. If you are breaking into 10s then this is a good little line. Couple of hard moves to relief.

Did this as a warm up and was not ready for that boulder problem at the start. Really sharp and harder than most cruxes I've done on 11a. Saying that, right after the first couple of moves it's 9+ at most.

This is no longer the last route. There is another route with glue-ins on the same shelf. Anybody know who put up the new route?

It’s on Mountain Project. Actually, there now are a fair number of newer RRG routes that can be found only on MP.

lol was about to joke that you can guarantee they already sprayed it down on the Prawj HAHAHA

It's a fun route, Bureau of Land Management. I think we gave it 11c. If you're curious about a route at Muir in the future there is a tag below the route ;) probably place there by the Bureau of Land Management no doubt.
