Description 

Kung Pao Cat is yet another great new route in the "new wave" style. Begin a ways left of Curiosity and right of Kool Cat below an obvious arÍte with two bolts. A difficult 5.11 move leads to the first clip and then cruxy climbing past a second clip culminates with a jug and a fixed wire in suspect rock. Above this is scary, committing climbing up a hollow flake with small, sketchy gear, but the situation improves rapidly. A good rest on a ledge is followed by a nicely varnished offset #1 Camalot crack with a final fun move to the chains. Great route but kinda scary.


Protection 

Tiny to #2 Camalot.

FA: Kim & Matt Lisenby in about 2005. Location: between Tender Vittles and the Line King. Glad this route is posted up, I couldn't recall what we named it. Does anyone have a good photo of this one? I recall using a large cam in a horizontal to make the opening move safer. If you like this route, you'll probably like "my little friend" at scarface and "the Doghouse" on the cat wall - both are more technical than your average IC crack.
