Description

Climb the middle of the cat wall starting right where the "Cat Walk" traverse to the practice face begins. There is a bolted belay next to a medium size tree directly above, halfway up the wall. It is 5.5, but you may have to hunt for the 5.5 moves, a direct line will be a bit harder. Gear in the beginning seemed sparse, better up high.

For P2, the crux is right off the belay ledge. Start just left of the belay/tree and move up in an alcove, Get good gear and pull the overhang, then sprint up 70' of easy terrain to a small tree and second set of bolts.

Location

Starts on the left side of the Cat Wall.

Descent - Rappel the route in two raps with a single 60m rope.

Protection

Rock pro, trees, bolted belay and rap stations.

The bolts at the top of P2 are looking in poor shape. They appear to be a rawl 5pc plated steel with metolius rap hangers. The bolts themselves are decently rusted on the outside. Perhaps someone with a little more bolting experience can check them out?
Top of P1 has a wasp/hornet/some-kind-of-giant-insect-that-will-end-you nest going on which made this much more stressful than need be. Just keep an eye out as it's further right from the anchor towards the river. Make sure not to rap over/into it either. Oct 11, 2017
