Description

The longest line on Catslab and my personal favorite, Jellicle Cats fires up the middle in either one long pitch or in two. Start with the Gumby Cat and keep on going. 5.10 cruxes arise right off the Gumby anchor and again in three more places. The harder of the cruxes is in getting out of a thin tips-only crack, and this an airy, committing move that relies on precise foot-work. Good stone, fun moves, and a wee bit bold all add up to three stars.

Protection

QDs only. This line tops out 140 feet above the deck and can be rapped with double ropes or in two stages with a 60 m rope.

Edit to add: There is now an anchor at the 115 foot mark that allows climbers to safely descend with one 70m rope.
