BETA PHOTO: The last (and best) pitch of The Cat's Ass
This climb is super chossy but the last pitch is pretty cool. The whole route is only about 100ft, but was broken up into 3 pitches to protect the second from heinous amounts of rockfall. In hindsight, 2 pitches would also be easily feasible. After a few more ascents in the name of cleaning and this climb will be awesome, but for now, be very careful.
P1: Scramble up 4th class to a short chimney, then climb more 4th and easy 5th class to a ledge at the base of a short dihedral.
P2: Climb the short dihedral to a ledge
P3: Climb splitter cracks and flat crimps to the top of the detached pillar. Jump across to the main cliff to belay.
Standard rack with extra 1 & 2 Camalot
