Unnamed 5.10: Route 41 ( 46 in 2nd edition of Bloom)

BETA PHOTO: Climber nearing the anchors and about to dive into...
Long climb with variety. Begin in a funky birth canal alcove with two hand cracks inside. Squirm your way through the first 10 feet and enjoy good hands to a series of ledges and stances. Stem against a secondary crack up to the wide section where a whole leg fits. It might be possible to exit via the secondary crack, but the legs are bomber if you stay right in the offwidth. A 70m rope will get you back to ground.
Two routes left from Curiosity as you come up from the East parking lot of Cat Wall. There are two offwidths in right facing corners here and this is the leftmost of the two.
Two chains for anchors at top. 3x #1 at your smallest, doubles of everything bigger including 2x #5.

Definitely bring a #5 camalot or two. If you don't have one, it's possible to escape via the thin crack on the left, though it's a tough reach to the anchors.
