Entering the crux on P1 (11b). Wilman's Walkabout....

Description 

Pitch 1 is a thin-corner climb, all free. Has some thin face moves on the lower 1/3 (crux) and some thin finger jamming-laybacking in the upper 1/3. The middle section is a mix of hands and fingers.

This pitch tends to be dry even when nearby routes are wet.

Pitch 2 is all free (5.10).

Pitch 3 is aid.

Location 

Midway between Jesters of Chaos and the Perverse Traverse. An obvious, white, left-facing corner.

Protection 

For P1, bring thin stoppers (e.g., down to RP #3 or ~3/16" width), some small cams (finger-tip size), one hand-sized cam, and mid-range stoppers. The first third of the pitch has three 3/8"bolts.

As the story goes, the route was named after Al Givler's seven-toed cat.

Holy cow (re, the link above), including all four feet, one cat had 27 toes!

I should add that I think that for Givler's cat, the seven were just one paw.
