BETA PHOTO: Caterpillar Corner
Obvious corner - look for chains to the right of a large corner. Starts under a big downpull with a cupped indentation to the right. Head right up the corner to slabby finish. This is a sweet route.
Mostly small to meduim SLCDs. There are placements for some stoppers and at least one knob that can be slung on the top half.
On the easier well protected section of Caterpille...

Sweet route, the start felt pretty stiff for a 5.8. Excellent climb wish the corner was longer! Still had a lot of gear on me at the top.

Fun climb. I found it runout at one spot about a quarter of the way up (the moves here are not that tough). Better to keep moving through this and not mess around with trying to place gear (no good spots). It is for this reason the route should be led by a comfortable 5.8 leader.
