This route is a steep line with great rests. Start out by climbing the right trending ramp and then moving left onto the dominant pillar. Once on top belay from tree or screws. Descend from tree to the right or walk off down and left.

  • If anybody has FA or name info for this climb or any of the climbs in Cataract Gulch, email me at scott.krankkala@western.edu.


This climb is midway up the gulch (past Unknown WI4) you will reach on the right side of the Cataract Gulch trail. Look for the line on the north-facing wall of a couloir on the right side of the trail.

This climb is real good. It is hard to see from the trail however. It is on the third or fourth gully on the right once you finish the switchbacks on the trail. Look for a small WI1 or 2 stream that goes from lookers left of the gully and then disappears into the gully. This is the flow that feeds the climb.

I think this climb is "Fight Cub" as described in Roberts' book.
