Description

Skin the Cat is the next route to the right from Looker. It is a bit steeper than the neighboring route but has an abundance of huge holds. Super-fun climb. Lower with a 60m rope.

Protection

Bolts to chain anchors.

Easier than it looks with huge holds. For me it's 5.7PG. If you fall on most moves you're hitting something. Jun 26, 2016

Not the best first 5.7 lead, but also not the worst. I recently took a group of beginning / moderate student climbers to this wall and some of them had trouble working through the blank-ish section after the 1st or 2nd bolt. The key there is to traverse far right, reach up and grab the awesome jugs, and then traverse back left again to rejoin the bolt line. Not the most fun / straightforward thing to do if you aren't comfortable or used to leading at the 5.7 level. Jun 28, 2014

Fun climb we felt like it was easily 5.8 and would be a very stout lead for a beginer. Sep 16, 2013

This is another route with a steep rating. It's not 5.8, but be ready for a tricky but well protected 5.7. A fun route but not as good as Looker to its left. Aug 1, 2011

Has a huge hueco you can actually sit in on the way up. Fun climb. A couple of height-dependant moves towards the middle third but not too bad. Would be a good first lead. Jun 12, 2011
