Start up a well featured face that is a bit steeper than the starts of the other climbs here. Transition into a shallow dihedral at the second bolt and then continue up easy terrain to the anchors.


First climb encountered between the Dead Cats and Rhetoric Walls.


Three bolts to quick links.

I probably have the name of this route wrong. If anyone knows the correct name, please let me know and I'll update. Thanks.

It's not the last route on Dead Cats wall. The last route on the wall is a 5.5. This route I believe is the third or fourth to last route.
