Mr. Mistoffeles lies to the right of 'Rumple Teaser' and left of 'Gumby Cat'. The climbing is classic slab climbing. The bolting is very generous and the route is very enjoyable. The 5.9 moves will come at the 6th-10th bolt following the seam just right. A great route for the aspiring leader. Cheers !!


12 bolts - 2 bolt anchor. Approximately 105 feet from lower off. Would suggest 2 ropes, also for other routes at Catslab.

Felt like a stout 9. It was one of my favorite climbs that I've ever done. The moves were so fun. I got shut down on it early summer and came back to cruise it today. Dec 3, 2017

I'd agree with Rob that this is stout for a 5.9 sport route in CCC. Sometimes grades in CC can be a bit soft, but this one isn' personal take, anyway. Jun 29, 2017

Good tester 5.9+ at least. Only because of the pretty blank slab about halfway. Friction feet for about 10ft. Jun 5, 2016

You're a good man, AC. Or woman. Might try the trad lead next time.

Still, this is probably my favorite of the "slabs" at Cat.... Apr 5, 2010

I think this has a very fun crux with a few different ways through it. A very different crux then say MacCavity or Jellicle Cats. Mar 29, 2010
Please, what are the directions to this wall? Sep 4, 2005
Cool route. Led it only clipping 1 bolt, seam takes good gear. Jun 14, 2005
