Hanging at one of the rests.
Kool Cat is located west along the Cat Wall past King Cat. The next route east is a right facing 5.10 corner followed by an improbable right facing stem corner referred to as Tender Vittles. Kool Cat is a finger crack in a right facing corner. There are several ledge-type rest stances along the way. The crux is the last section capped by the last move to the anchors. This is a well protected, fun climb. Well worth doing.
many .5" and .75" pieces (green, yellow aliens) with a few .4" and maybe a couple 1" pieces

Another great cat wall climb. Seems a little harder for those with sausage fingers, if the going gets tough, look at the crack to the left, kool cat will seem like a hand crack.

the crux at the top takes .3 camalots. You might be able to stuff a yellow alien in there, but .3s fit great

I thought the crux just before the anchors was pretty tough.

The 15 footer I took on to the little blue camalot trying to finish it makes me a believer in the difficulty and the cams Tavis. I used a few purple camalots and a green and a yellow. You could use a second if you wanted to carry it but the climbing is relatively easy there.
