L to R R to L Alpha
The Main Walls offer routes at all levels of difficulty. While there are some excellent leads, most routes are top roped. There is no fixed hardware so bring a long dynamic rope/webbing to reach trees that are well back from the cliff edge. Watch for sharp edges. Cathole is notorious for loose rock so wear a helmet at all times.
Hike up the steep approach trail that starts at the north end of the parking area. The trail trends to the left through boulders and loose rock. You end up beneath Pegasus. To access the top, duckwalk through the narrow opening between the cliff and a huge free-standing boulder at the far right end (Photo) beneath Golden Book. Follow the obvious and VERY loose trail up a gully. There is another ascent trail on the far left side of the crag.
