(95 feet) 9 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor. Begin at the far right of the Catslab below a large dirt-covered ledge. Have fun frictioning and hauling up this well-protected route with just a couple of points of 7. Scramble from the last bolt to a large belay ledge that is covered with loose pebbles. To descend, one can rappel with a single, standard rope angling right onto a brushy ledge. Down-climb easy terrain for 10 feet. Remember to tie stopper knots to prevent rapping off the ends.
Bolts to a double bolt anchor.

I think the Grizabella is a good first sport climb or for a warmup. I would recommend a 60 meter rope if you beley from the bottom or the belayer can anchor in to the first hanger with a 50 meter rope.

Overbolted, but still fun. Easy sport lead for beginner.

BRING A 70M ROPE OR A RESPONSIBLE BELAYER. I took about a 20 footer with a 60m and a belayer that wasn't paying close attention to the end of the rope. Broken bones and a near death experience.

I did this climb and lowered off the anchors with a 60 meter rope and had a few extra feet of slack on the ground. I agree with the guidebook that this route is 95 feet. A 60 meter rope is adequate.

I counted 10 bolts + 2 bolt anchor..? Could just as easily be climbed with 9 + 2 though.
I climbed it with a 70m rope, but I think a 60m would safely suffice if the belayer climbs up to the ledge near the first bolt.
