Clipping the anchors, with the crux just below me
Climb dual cracks with face holds for 40 ft to a good rest. From here it's 80ft of hands to wide hands in a corner through some bulges to the anchors. Crux comes high.
If you take the left trail up to the base of Cat Wall, this is the first route you will see. Tom Cat will be to your left.
Single's of everything from .75 to 3. Heavy on the 2's and 3's. A 70m will get you down.
Down low on the pitch, using both cracks
A bit higher up, stillusing both cracks
Two cracks make this much easier that it would be ...

This is Child Abuse, a Jay Smith route.
Hard and wide to upper anchors.

it was a while ago that I led this, but I wouldn't call it wide at any point. I didn't place anything bigger than a 3 camalot. So I guess wide if you have small hands.

This isn't child abuse, it is Unnamed 19. Child Abuse is way to the left, just left of Deseret Moon, and has a fair amount of OW. This route is pretty much all hands, from small hands at the start, cups through the middle, and slightly big hands when it gets steeper at the top.

I have small hands - can jam #1 Camalot cracks just fine; and I struggled at the crux, where it got bigger. Partly I was tired by then, and I didn't have enough big gear (3s). I did not know it was going to get bigger up there, and didn't bring enough.

Sign at bottom is calling this "Kitty Kicker" and this route is listed twice in the database, once as 10, and once as 10+.

great line that has a bit of everything from twin cracks at the start to small pod (and the inevitable exiting) to sustained varied hand size sections middle on up. 120 feet of enduro jam fest. a toughie if you have small hands like mine. but hell it was so much fun! last 20 feet was pure gold camelots vertical staircase.
gear wise nothing bigger than #3 camelots. bring mucho #2 (my partner brought only 5 golds and had to run out the last 15 feet to gun for the top!)
yeah there was a plague naming the climb "Kitten Kicker" - not sure if that was from the FA party or someone just made it up?
