Description 

Tom Cat is a great warmup crack in a darkly varnished, right-facing dihedral. It is a ways left along the Cat Wall, maybe 300 meters?

Head up a tight slot with a protectable crack for 25 feet, then pull into the dihedral and climb slightly wide hands all the way to the anchors.


Protection 

Single set. Extra wide hands.

Was told blue camalots were all I needed. Fortunately I had one yellow I moved a time or two.

Definitely more #3 camalots than #2s. Also, nice to have a 0.75 or 0.5 to place before getting in the slot so you don't deck.

The guidebook led me to believe it would be mostly #2 camalots, when I found it to be mostly #3 camalots. I think I placed 4 #3 camalots.
