Irina Overeem high-stepping the roof.
MacCavity is located on the far right side of the Catslab, 2nd route from the right side of the bottom section of the slab. This is an enjoyable long pitch (120 feet) with great climbing throughout. The line goes through the right side of a little roof. (Left side of roof is Gumby Cat.) Climb past 8 more bolts with perhaps a move of 9+/10 climbing. A splendid line, which will be enjoyed by all.
13 bolts - 2 bolt anchor. Approximately 125 feet from lower off. 2 ropes mandatory.

This route can be led and seconded with a single rope by taking advantage of the 3rd class gully, just climbers right of the route. --Fun moves on the unusual, thin quartz veneer, high on the route.

This is a good line and a perfect first 5.10 lead! The moves thru the right side of the small roof are easier than they appear from the ground. With a 60 meter rope it's no problem to rap to the big ledge twenty feet off the ground and scramble down the easy terrain.

In my opinion, the moves heading right around the "roof" is not the crux, but instead the slab up higher. Not as difficult as Jellicle Cats. I did not note any loose rock.

I really liked this route. Consistent nice movement all the way up, with a little variety getting around the bulge roof (maybe the crux, but not much harder than other parts). Felt like a pleasant 5.9 to me, and a really secure lead as long as you don't mind the runout to the first bolt.

This route rocks. You do not need two ropes if you have a 70 m rope, though. The crux was not the roof for me, it was the last 25 ft on the mega slab.

+1 that 2 ropes are not necessary as AC said. The obvious gully to the climber's right is an easy downclimb.

Good route, used a 70m rope and had about 10-15 feet left on the ground. The last 25 feet is tough going.

The anchor bolts on this route are suspect and in need of replacement. They are wiggling in their bolt holes. Be careful lowering. I'd be happy to assist in the replacement.

Anchor replaced this evening. Due to funky rock in the original location, the new anchors are about 2 ft. lower. Big thanks to ASCA for the hardware!

Thank you for the anchor replacement!
