Feline is a line thats hard to miss. It's just upstream a ways from Merry Maids, the huge, left-facing dihedral. If you're on the Ice Caves side of the stream, follow the path upstream from Merry Maids for about 60 yards (past the tiny cave) and you will see a dim fork in the trail, take it up left and there you are. You can also wade across the stream at a pullout just up the road from the bridge, or you can walk downstream from the Bauhaus. Either way, the route is distinct and long with big, long blocks protruding out. Scramble up the the start and get gunnin'. This route is super fun with huge no hands rests in places. Milk the rests, and you will send. The moves are great and challenging between the rests. Big, blocky sidepulls lead to places to shake out and clip. The route is super well-protected and the climbing is never desperate. Enjoy!
You'll need 10 draws and you can lower off from fixed draws at the anchors. You might want to bring 2 more if you're setting up a toprope....
Per Fitz Fitzgerald: there is a short trail from the pullout to a bridge across the stream which puts you almost directly across from Feline (slightly left of).
