Description 

While origionally put up in December of 05' the route is essentially a warm weather rig as it's in the shade throughout the day. Crux is slightly above the half way point and features intriging technical moves and well thought out protection that position it as one of the better routes in the Gorge. Gets its name from the cat that paused underneath, was gathered up in the arms of the 1st ascentionist, and who happened to gaze up and notice this gem.

Location 

Narrows area, east side, just below Astroboy. Left face on a huge left facing corner.

Protection 

9 bolts.

pretty sure there are only 8 bolts, for anyone counting bolts trying to figure out what they're looking at
