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.

Wild Cat is a great finger-stacking testpiece on the west end of the Cat Wall (closer to Nine Lives than Johnny Cat). Climb through a reachy start and clip a bolt that protects a face climbing move up to a pillar. Rest here and then bust it up the not-quite-straight-in off-fingers crack to a final crux: trying to clip the anchors....[more] Browse More Classics in UT
