Will Pfister on French Feline.

Description 

An off width lie back crux leads to overhanging fist jams and a 50 foot splitter moderate crack that eases as you ascend. The belay is at the same tree as "Tail of the Cat"

Location 

Right and around the corner from Curiosity Corner at an obvious flaring crack with a bolt.

Protection 

Standard rack, double #3, #4. You can place gear nearly anywhere on the climb and the low crux is protected by the bolt.

CONDITION REPORT 
The bolt on this was very loose as of 4/9, it had almost spun off when I got up to it. I tightened it as much as I could with my hand... but it would be smart to bring a wrench or a nut tool that has one if you're headed that way.

This neat route is truly a hidden gem. Nice work fellers.
