Description 

A slab adventure. Perhaps best in fall - can be dirty in spring right after snow melt. If you can get to the first bolt on pitch 1 (quite high) you can do this route.
P1 5.10a 4 bolts to bolted anchor.
P2 5.9 4 bolts to bolted anchor.


Location 

North Face Apron


Protection 

In 2006 all bolts were 1/4" and rusty. I don't believe I found any trad placements. Rappel the route.

All of the bolts on this route (and most of the others on the NFA) have been replaced in recent years thanks to the efforts of the ASCA. However, the first bolt of Cat Dancing has had it's hanger hammered flat by rockfall. It's not completely flat so it can still be clipped by a smaller sized carabiner or it could easily be threaded with a sling.

Even with the new bolts it's a long way up there to that first one with some very insecure smearing about 20ft off the deck. This is a more difficult lead than Bottom Feeder.
