Pit Bull Terror

This long, steep, right-facing corner is right of the Johnny Cat alcove, just before the buttress rounds the corner to Fat Cat and Catastroph. 2 ropes are needed (a single 70m might work).
This is your typical Indian Creek endurance climb... no stopper crux, but lots of physical climbing. The climb starts with a slightly overhung lieback, eventually widening to hands. Climb quickly through the lieback... small hands people will get to thin hand jams reasonably quickly. The top is a mix of wide hands and pod climbing.
A few pieces in the yellow alien to green camalot size. Many thin hands to wide hands pieces (3 to 4) of each. A #4 friend or #4 camalot.

Two each of purple, green, red and yellow camalots, plus several blue camalots for the upper wider section will give ample pro. A single 70 m rope is long enough to lower off with.

There's a second pitch on Pit Bull Terror done by myself and Will Hays. Its another 80 feet or so of climbing with a fun undercling traverse into a good hands/Cups crack. About 5.10+/11-

A #4 camalot didn't do much good (didn't fit) but a old 4.5 camalot or new #5 camalot really works well in the wide section.
