Cheatah is a great, sustained climb on the long east face of Bill's Buttress. Start out by getting above a small 10" overhang using a few key foot placements (be prepared to stretch). Once above the overhang things get slightly easier using the finger crack. About 2/3's up there is a nearly blank face with a 10 foot crack. Use a combination of a layback and finger jams to conquer this section.

For a proper ascent, avoid the jugs on right arete during the crux moves up the thin seam.

From there to the top things get easier.


Smaller range of stoppers or cams
