The Cathouse is one of the least accessible and least visited areas of Long Dong. The only bolts here are anchors. However, for the adventurous traditional climber, this is where it's at. A concentration of super high-quality routes ascend the cracks that break up this multi-tiered section of cliff.
From the southern parking lot, descend the Golden Valley trail. When you find yourself at the base, turn right and head south past the Golden Valley climbs, until you have to climb a ramp up to the overhanging start of routes like Golden Shower. Continue past Tofu Tower and multi-pitch sport routes. Beware of waves and slick rock at high tide!

A very unique climb in which you stem between two opposing dihedrals before shooting up a slot in the rock and up to a scenic ledge. Start just in front of the refrigerator cave. Scramble up 20' of easy stone to the bigger cave, and let the adventure begin. Pass the Psycho Killer anchor bolts on your left, and continue through the roof. Beware of loose rock here. That handcrack in front of you really is as good as it looks... enjoy. After a few moves, face holds present themselves just ...[more] Browse More Classics in International
