BETA PHOTO: Jag follows the outside right corner past the over...


Jaguar climbs the face and arete just left of the Pegasus dihedral. The crux is the last few delicate moves on the arete and establishing yourself on the face above the small roof. Straight up the arete here is slightly harder than using the holds on the face. Harder variations can be done further left on the face. Certainly the best route at Cathole and one of the best in CT.


Jaguar is pretty much the first route you see when you get to the crag. The Pegasus dihedral is the most prominent feature on the right side of the cliff, the Jaguar arete forms the left wall of Pegasus.


I have only toproped this; it would be very difficult to protect on lead. Use long runners from trees on the clifftop.

A couple bolts would make this the most exciting climb in the state.

Amazing rock quality on this one. Very strange moves and pretty darn technical for the grade.
