  • Description 

    Mr. Mistoffeles lies to the right of 'Rumple Teaser' and left of 'Gumby Cat'. The climbing is classic slab climbing. The bolting is very generous and the route is very enjoyable. The 5.9 moves will come at the 6th-10th bolt following the seam just right. A great route for the aspiring leader. Cheers !!

    Protection 

    12 bolts - 2 bolt anchor. Approximately 105 feet from lower off. Would suggest 2 ropes, also for other routes at Catslab.

    Cool route. Led it only clipping 1 bolt, seam takes good gear.

    I think this has a very fun crux with a few different ways through it. A very different crux then say MacCavity or Jellicle Cats.

    You're a good man, AC. Or woman. Might try the trad lead next time.

    Still, this is probably my favorite of the "slabs" at Cat....
