Face and crack climb to a bulge(crux), easier crack climbing leads you to an anchor. Very exposed with good views of the Lower Gorge and The Marsupials.


North face of The Parched Cat Cliff


Gear to 2 inches(00 TCU)

Climbs like a sport climb, protects like a trad climb. Fun moves. Jun 24, 2016

Fun route. The biggest gear i used was a .75 Camalot. Mark, thanks for putting in low profile, high quality anchors. Looks like going left after the lower bulge could make for a tougher finish. Dec 20, 2006
