Description

Kung Pao Cat is yet another great new route in the "new wave" style. Begin a ways left of Curiosity and right of Kool Cat below an obvious arĂȘte with two bolts. A difficult 5.11 move leads to the first clip and then cruxy climbing past a second clip culminates with a jug and a fixed wire in suspect rock. Above this is scary, committing climbing up a hollow flake with small, sketchy gear, but the situation improves rapidly. A good rest on a ledge is followed by a nicely varnished offset #1 Camalot crack with a final fun move to the chains. Great route but kinda scary.

Protection

Tiny to #2 Camalot.
