Skin the Cat is the next route to the right from Looker. It is a bit steeper than the neighboring route but has an abundance of huge holds. Super-fun climb. Lower with a 60m rope.


Bolts to chain anchors.

Has a huge hueco you can actually sit in on the way up. Fun climb. A couple of height-dependant moves towards the middle third but not too bad. Would be a good first lead.

This is another route with a steep rating. It's not 5.8, but be ready for a tricky but well protected 5.7. A fun route but not as good as Looker to its left.

Fun climb we felt like it was easily 5.8 and would be a very stout lead for a beginer.
