The Cat Wall is loaded with lots of great climbs. Most of these are fairly difficult in the 5.10+ to 5.12+ range. There are fantastic splitters that cut through magnificent roofs as well as some thin, steep finger cracks. There seems to be great lines every ten to thirty yards along the wall. Even if there are a lot of people around, keep walking and you will find a fun worthwhile line that is unoccupied.
From Newspaper Rock drive about 8 miles to the junction of County Road 104 and Utah 211 (this is about 5 miles north of Supercrack Buttress). Park on the east side of the road at the large dirt turn-out. Go through the ranch gate (be sure to close it behind you) and follow a trail that heads NE toward the wall. The walk is almost 2 miles. However, unless things have changed, a moderately well driven two-wheel-drive with a little clearance should be able to drive in through the gate considerably closer to the wall and park on a knoll right below the trail that goes up to the cliffs.

Uncharacteristic for an Indian Creek route in that the climb does not rely on crack climbing. Make your way up the first half of the route on an array of shelves, wraps and rounded crimpers. The meat of the climb is moving through a very small tips crack (about 20 feet). Unless you have fingers thinner than the diameter of a #2 pencil, just treat this section as a long 1/4-pad crimp fest. After a good stance on top of the thin crack, step in pods, maybe use a nearly invisible ledge and fin...[more] Browse More Classics in UT
