After an awkward and high first clip, this climb follows a blunt arete that succumbs to all manners of trickery. Morning Sun/Afternoon shade.


Cat in the Hat is located on the east face of Big Pine Tower. This is the second bolted route from the right. To those familiar with the Rupley Towers approach, this climb starts right where the trail drops downhill from BPT to the last short scramble to the base of the RTs.


7 bolts and chain anchors

The start below the first bolt is no gimme; awkward offwidth to 5.10 dusty, polished, water-streak slab. You can protect it w a #3/#4? cam and then unclip later. Whole route felt like 11d/12a. May 16, 2012
