Bad Cat is to the right of Mad Dog and one route left of Johnny Cat. Bust through the left trending splitter finger crack and enter the shallow diehedral. Follow this to the top on pumping thin hand jams. An enduro-fest on killer sandstone.
Friends: #.5(2), #.75(3), #1.5(5), #2(8). 120' Good fixed anchor.

A thousand apologies people. The photo I submitted is for the route one right of Johnny Cat, it is 12b or maybe harder and I thought it was names Bad Cat. It turns out bad cat is the one to the LEFT of Johnny Cat. My mistake, please don't get confused. If someone knows the name of the route in the picture, you should post it, it is a very nice climb.

Three stars??! Three stars??!!! Man, this climb is freaking rad and is deserving of much more than just three stars! Oh, and it is less than 120 feet, we had a 70M and had quite a bit of rope left.

The splitter at the bottom is very sequential for me and certainly the crux. Solid 5.12. The rest is a 5.11 endurance fest. As for gear, you'll want at least one #1 friend (orange metolious) for the splitter. A purple metolious is helpful for reaching the splitter. Also, some 1 camalots are very helpful for the thin hands and fit better than the #2 friends. Green camalots are helpful as well. I only placed 2 #1.5 friends. A #3.5 friend is helpful near the top where a small flake in the crack makes the smaller gear a little sketchy.

If you can campus on finger locks than the first 30 feet should be cruiser! A super pumpy and stellar route with good rests between the cruxes.

YAHOOO!!!! I went back and led this thing clean after a cursory brushing. Turns out it goes without all the marks telling you where to put your hands and feet. Jason also gave it a good scrubbing (without removing to much of the actual rock) and, for now, it's tick mark free! Thanks Jason.

Bad Cat is filthy from being dormant. Bring a couple good brushes and be prepared to dog up the first go before sending this pitch. This applies to quite a few routes on the cat right now.
