Description

This route is just right of Lucille and about 20 feet left of Cat's Cradle. As you top out on Walt's Wall, look left to the obvious Hassler's Hatbox formation.

Work your way through the rockstacle course and down to the start of what looks like a chimney. This climb is great for beginning trad leaders. The climb has it all, cracks, easy off-width techniques and stemming.

Rap down from the bolts at the top of Cat's Cradle. Note: there is usually a stiff breeze at the bottom, so belayers take an extra shirt or jacket. Don't forget water; you'll be thirsty after coming up Walt's Wall.

Protection

This route is easily protected with a standard rack. Larger cams at the start and for an anchor at the top, up to a #4 friend. About half way up, parallel cracks can by protected with smaller stuff, cams or passive gear.
