Description 

Catwalk is one of those oldschool "classics" dirty, awkward, and hard in the grade...

An easy line to locate... Look for the big right slanting chimney/crack starting just right of Armpits (5.7) that makes for a moderate line up this blocky section of the cliff... Face climb up 20 feet and get in to the chimney... Make your way up the chimney (harder for big folks) until you can break right on to a face and up to where catwalk meets Heave Ho (5.5).... This is achived be traversing right under a bulge then up cracks to a stance... to gain the summit climb a moderate corner to the top...

Mike Thompson and i got a little silly yesterday and did this route in a steady rain while temps hovered in the upper 40s... As i lead it in one long pitch i had equal parts of laughing and fearing a fall that could happen at any moment on the slippery dirty rock... We manager to make a well protected 5.5 in to a 5.10R, haha...

i believe my favorite part was dodging random paraphanalia strewn across our path
