Pharaoh's Hat with Hat Trick outlined in yellow

Private Property MORE INFO >>>

Description 

This is the third known route on The Hat. From the ramp at the corner where Cat In The Hat begins, continue on an exposed ledge to the West. At the lowest part of the wall, this route starts on a small spur of dark colored rock on the right side of the wall near some small bushes.

Pitch #1: Climb up the spur to where it steepens. Pockets, rounded jugs, fun edges, and length compose the character. Pass 10 bolts to a 3-bolt belay stance. 5.10a, 30m.

Pitch #2: Continue up a somewhat puzzling section, past a bolt to easier climbing. An old piton (probably from Broughton's 1991 climb?) is found just before the two-bolt belay (shared with Cat In The Hat, P1). 5.7, 20m.

Continue on to the tower top or Rappel the route

Location 

On the North Face of the Pharaoh's Hat, this is a bolted line that starts near the center of the face 20m to the right (west) of Cat In The Hat. See more details for that route.

Protection 

QDs for 11 bolts. Belay bolt at the base on the ledge. A small assortment of Camalots may be useful on Pitch #2.

Much fun! 1st ptch is exciting as rock is quite lichen covered, seems solid enough though. Well protected, Thanks James. 2nd ptch is easy enough climbing but slim picking for gear placement.
