A short, steep and loose descent at the end of Dog Face. Watchout for the rock slab at the bottom. Beginners should take the easier descent from the fork at the top (look for signs) to avoid lots of walking down the steep Tower of Babel and destroying the trail.

Access Info

Via the Puppy Canyon climb, look for the signs for the Dog Face trail.
