Moving through the tricky section that gains the s...

Description 

Start up the left facing corner and clip the first bolt. Continue directly up to join Slap and Tickle at the 2nd bolt. Continue to a tricky sequence that gains the large shelf.

Continue up the slab to the last bolt. Passing the last bolt is the crux, but with some good slab technique the anchors are soon reached.

Slap and Tickle, Up The Junction and Cool For Cats all share the same anchors.

Location 

Center corner of the squeeze section

Protection 

4 bolts and 2 ring anchors

Some nice jams on this variation which ends all too quickly by merging with the other routes on either side. Finishes with the same mantle/highstep crux as it's neighbors.

fun route down low, crux is at top. unfortunately there's some decking potential due to the ledge just below the last bolt.
