Description 

This route lies on the south arÍte of One-Eyed Cat Wall. Forget the cheater rock nearby and power your way through the opening crux to gain the wall. Continue over easier moderate ground on large plates. At the ledge, clip the last bolt and trust that foot - moving up and left through the second crux to finish on delicate slab. Rappel to descend.


Protection 

6 bolts, bolted anchor

Probably the hardest route I've done. Johnny Quest was rated harder but there were places to put my hands on that one. On this? Slab! God! But having done it, really glad I didn't back down. The cruxes are at the start, a little bit in the middle and definitely the 'beach ball' at the top.

I look ALL over for this climb and had no luck. I did find the Horny boulder and nothing else. Can someone please help me? I want to climb this but need help finding ANYTHING on the North side. Maybe directions from the Horny boulder :}

Crux right at the top with some slab moves past the last bolt - thought provoking...
