Description

Fun, well protected climbing. There are 2 right facing corners on the SW aspect of Catopia. Start in the left corner system and trend up the middle of the face following good gear. Step right at the ledge and continue to the top of the tower. Rappel straight down the face in between Catalyst and Category 4.

Location

Southwest aspect of Catopia.

Exactly, Arjun! We originally wanted to go up that weakness too, but I am not nearly as ballsy (sp?) as you and opted for the better looking rock to the left! Mar 26, 2013

Ah, I get it now and see why I just went up what I thought the natural line was in that kinda dihedral like crack feature. Was fine, nothing great. Will have to try Catalyst next time out. It doesn't really need to be a FA, as I was just trying to do Catalyst and had only my memory of Geir's loosely waved directions to go on. Jan 7, 2013
