Description 

Climb the middle of the cat wall starting right where the "Cat Walk" traverse to the practice face begins. There is a bolted belay next to a medium size tree directly above, halfway up the wall. It is 5.5, but you may have to hunt for the 5.5 moves, a direct line will be a bit harder. Gear in the beginning seemed sparse, better up high.

For P2, the crux is right off the belay ledge. Start just left of the belay/tree and move up in an alcove, Get good gear and pull the overhang, then sprint up 70' of easy terrain to a small tree and second set of bolts.

Location 

Starts on the left side of the Cat Wall.

Descent - Rappel the route in two raps with a single 60m rope.

Protection 

Rock pro, trees, bolted belay and rap stations.

The bolts at the top of P2 are looking in poor shape. They appear to be a rawl 5pc plated steel with metolius rap hangers. The bolts themselves are decently rusted on the outside. Perhaps someone with a little more bolting experience can check them out?
