The Cat Wall is loaded with lots of great climbs. Most of these are fairly difficult in the 5.10+ to 5.12+ range. There are fantastic splitters that cut through magnificent roofs as well as some thin, steep finger cracks. There seems to be great lines every ten to thirty yards along the wall. Even if there are a lot of people around, keep walking and you will find a fun worthwhile line that is unoccupied.
From Newspaper Rock drive about 8 miles to the junction of County Road 104 and Utah 211 (this is about 5 miles north of Supercrack Buttress). Park on the east side of the road at the large dirt turn-out. Go through the ranch gate (be sure to close it behind you) and follow a trail that heads NE toward the wall. The walk is almost 2 miles. However, unless things have changed, a moderately well driven two-wheel-drive with a little clearance should be able to drive in through the gate considerably closer to the wall and park on a knoll right below the trail that goes up to the cliffs.

This unusual Indian Creek finger crack actually has a crux that is more akin to face climbing. Be ready to pull it while protected by your smallest cams though. The route is way left of the Johnny Cat alcove, though not as far over as 9 Lives. There is a plaque at the base.Climb the excellent finger crack at a sustained low-mid 5.11 level. A decent rest stance can be found just below the crux where the crack pinches to nothing. Fire in all the purple TCUs you brought and go for the crux. I...[more] Browse More Classics in UT
