Description

This is the first fully bolted line on the Catwalk. The first bolt is just above the broken rock, after which the route follows an undulating column of basalt. Its slightly heady between 2nd and 3rd bolt but gear is not required. Expect the typical intellectual basalt climbing in the area, with stems, mantels, slopers, edges, and pockets.

Location

First bolted route in the Catwalk area.

Thanks to an awesome person, there is a new bolt before the previous 3rd bolt, removing the risk of falling on the ledge from the opening moves, making for a nice safe route. Sep 18, 2017
Funnily enough I was up there 2 days ago very near Crossroads with a friend contemplating cleaning a gigantic hollow block, alas we were too scared to pull it because from up there it looked like it would collapse the whole Catwalk! Jul 30, 2017

toproped by Brett Yost and Ted Stahl in fall 2001. We had a scary close call while cleaning a very very loose flake near the top. Jul 29, 2017

Full value 5.11, stays hard all the way to the chains! It was nice to climb Prometheus and then swing over and pre-hang the draws on this route. Jul 22, 2016
You can get a piece or even two basically stacked on top of each other between the 2 & 3rd bolt. (feels like between 1st and 2nd because the actual first bolt is at the pillar just above the chossy basalt)

Can't remember what size though. Seem to remember a red C3 though or something bigger if you want to take away your great finger jam. Apr 11, 2016

"Slightly heady" is a slightly irresponsible description. If you blow the clip at the 3rd bolt (or really, if you fall anywhere close to it), it's a ground fall. Plain and simple. You might be able to get a BD 0.3 or 0.4 placement between the two bolts, but it's not altogether casual climbing, so be prepared.

Otherwise, it's a super fun climb. Oct 25, 2015
