Garret Bywaters on The Cat's Ass

Seasonal Peregrine Falcon Closures MORE INFO >>>

Description 

Delicate face climbing leads to an undercling move over a bulge. Some more moves lead to the crux which is a big lock-off using a small crimp to a sloping lip that must be mantled for the RP. Crux can be a heart-breaker. Probably the best pound for pound route in the quarry.

Location 

Second from the right end of the Cat's Ass wall.
