Not a good route but the only way to the upper wall. This alone makes it worthwhile. From cul de sac at top of approach gully climb the low angle wall to the right. Best way is to stop and belay when you hit the woods to the right of the large boulder. Follow the trail around right and tunnel through a cool cave to reach the upper wall. It was on the FA of this route that Brian came face to face with the crag's namesake. We found some of its scat and sent it to NCSU lab. The results came back- big cat!
