The north-facing, shady side of the Alligator Lounge is known as the Cat Scratch Wall. A little obscure and off the beaten track, this wall is a great spot to find some solitude and great climbing.

Getting There 

There are two ways to get here: 1) If you are at the main east-facing Alligator Lounge area, skirt around east then northwest in the first gully to find the wall. 2) As you approach the Lounge via the normal approach, cut up & left (west) before dropping to the forest floor. This brings you to the Swamp; continue around the cliff a short distance to the north-facing Cat Scratch Wall.
