Stem your way up the corner with mostly easy climbing but a couple of delicate cruxes with a finish out right on a slab.

The guidebook lists this as 5.9, but I've heard it rated 5.11, which seems too stiff. We thought it to be in the 5.10 range, probably easy 10.


This is on the left side of the Canine Wall about 50 feet right of Stepping Stone. Look for the obvious, stemming dihedral.


9 bolts to anchor.

This is a super fun stemming climb! Be warned though the book calls it a 5.9. It climbs like a 5.10a/b. Oct 24, 2011

A great challenging climb, did this today and definitely agree with the 5.10 rating. I would put it at 5.10b especially considering the climb directly to the right is a 5.10b, and I think it is much easier. Lots of stemming of course and pinching. Jun 7, 2012
Fun, fun, fun. I third the 10a/b rating. Not a 9 in any respect. Jul 12, 2016

This route is really cool. Great stemming and position. Needs traffic to clean it up. The moves are good. Maybe someone adding 1 more lap of polish to Feline will come across the canyon to climb this. Oct 2, 2016
