Feona on the Katsaplias jug, contemplating the cru...

Description 

Means: "a cat distilled from the sap of a lias tree."

Excellence on edges. Pull through sequency seams and lift on micro ledges until you land the milk jug about 3/4 of the way up. Welcome to today's crux: reach/stretch/shoulder lift/throw to an awful awful potato chip or fall in shame and walk on home, boy.

Wafer thin after dinner climbers can cheat the crux using heinous, off-camber intermediate crimpers. Fatties just have to (wo)man up and dyno that mutha. Three star brilliance either way.


Location 

Middle of the left (south) main wall of Symplegades. Just a couple of climbs to the right of the obvious "Homo Sapiens." Marked in blue paint.


Protection 

Thirteen-ish draws, some balls, and a fresh katsaplias or two. Two-bolt/1 'biner anchor finishes the deal.
