Description 

"Climb the middle of the cat wall starting right where the "Cat Walk" traverse to the practice face begins. There is a bolted belay next to a medium size tree directly above, halfway up the wall. It is 5.5, but you may have to hunt for the 5.5 moves, a direct line will be a bit harder. Gear in the beginning seemed sparse, better up high.

For P2, the crux is right off the belay ledge. Start just left of the belay/tree and move up in an alcove, Get good gear and pull the overhang, then sprint up 70' of easy terrain to a small tree and second set of bolts.

Descent - Rappel the route in two raps with a single 60m rope."

-Larry S.

Location 

Starts on the left side of the Cat Wall.

The view of the second pitch after pulling the well protected crux moves onto the easy rock above.  You can go up the center of the face, but stepping 10 feet right to the arete (shown) gets you fantastic exposure.  2 bolts and a slung tree at the top.
