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.
