Start at a narrow platform just above and to the right of the approach dihedral. Your belayer will be perched precariously over crashing waves and a hard deck far below - belay anchor advised. Step up the slab and climb the clean finger crack in the back of the dihedral. Gear can be a little finicky. The crux is a long reach or tenuous jam about two-thirds of the way up. You can step left or continue up the steeper crack (thin, harder). Savor the exposure as you top out on a comfortable ledge.


Northeast corner of Cathouse. Just above the approach dihedral. The Cat's Away starts from the same ledge, but goes right.
