Description Suggest change

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.

Protection Suggest change

Smaller range of stoppers or cams
