Stray Cats is a little crag on the East Side of Baldy. It is up on the hill and there is quite a slog (compared to the rest of Quartz approaches) to get there. There are only two routes listed here both at 5.10 but they are fun for the most part. A good distraction if you're out there for a few days and get tired of climbing slabs.

Getting There 

Take the main trail that goes under all the routes on Baldy. Eventually you'll start heading north and exit the woods. If you look up and left from the trail you'll see Stray Cats Wall with a prominent hand crack splitting the middle of the face. take the trails up the hill to the base of the crag.
