Access Issue: RAIN, WET ROCK and RAPTOR CLOSURES: The sandstone around Moab is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. Also please ask and be aware of Raptor Closures in areas such as CAT WALL and RESERVOIR WALL in Indian Creek Details

Description

Just right of Kool Cat is a strange stembox. Tender Vittles climbs this - according to the plaque - at 5.weird. I guess it depends on how small your fingers are but I thought it was fully 5.12.

Climb the thin left facing corner. Just when things get impossible, a few edges on the right face allow desperate upwards progress. At a roof, stemming becomes viable affording a much-needed rest. Punch way up to a welcome bolt, and continue up and right over strange terrain. A final crux awaits pulling up to a sloping stance, then one more bolt protects the final moves to the anchor.

Protection

Lots of black, blue, and green Aliens. I mean lots. A few fingers pieces and singles of anything larger than that. No wires or Loweballs really, but a #3 Camalot is crucial pro high on the route. 60m cord reaches the ground.

This is a very cool pitch. I use some wires Nov 19, 2011
Such a cool pitch -- One of the better routes at the Cat Wall I think. The route looks kinda scary from the ground but the gear is all there, I think that Josh nailed the gear beta. No wires or loweballs needed. Jan 23, 2014
