Kitty Wall: this is the first and closest thing resembling climbing between the parking area and Sphinx/Obelisk formations. West facing in a bowl a few hundred yards from parking.  
The two routes are 5.easy, maybe 5.6 and 5.4.
Left line: Herding Cats 5.6 for 70? feet.
Right line: Easy Glyph 5.4ish. Follow the obvious wide crack up.
Both will take a standard rack, and have cracks at the top for building TR anchors. You can easily walk off both, with a little scrambling. Plenty of easy lines available here, and some harder ones toward the south end. Jun 2, 2015
Have to add 5 more routes to The Sphinx now. Two routes on the south face, both 5.7, by Creelman and Sumner. Another on the south face 5.9 by Christman and Sumner. One three pitcher straight up the incredible dihedral on the central face-King Tut, 5.10, by Christman and Sumner. Another three or four pitcher starting on the north side of the NW buttress , then onto the prow-5.9 A2 by Creelman and Sumner. And tons more quality climbs left to do. Have at it ladies and gentlemen.
