Description 

Terribly solid for the grade, Cool Katz is possibly the best entry level route at The Green Valley Gap. Despite its crimperific start, Cool Katz is a straight shooting line that starts hard and eases off towards the end.

Nice climbing on a blunt arete passes good holds and sharp crimps. Break through the start and enjoy easier moves to the anchor.


Location 

Cool Katz sits on the far northwest end of The Green Valley Gap. Its directly left of The Inquisition.


Protection 

Three or four bolts to a two bolt anchor.

Cool Katz is the furthest west route on the north wall of The Green Valley Gap. Not the "northeast" as the description says.

there are actually three routes even further than this, but you're right about the west side.
