Description

Nice friction climbing that feels more like Stone Mountain than Rumbly. Make crimpy moves off the ground leading to a white pod with a tcu placement. From here, move left for run out but fun climbing or opt for the scaredy cat way (as I did), and move right around a moss pad on easy terrain for a bolt. Continue past great friction, a # 2 cam, another bolt, then right to the heady traverse into the Curiosity Corner. Plug a #3 cam in the corner and head for the tree slings.
Note: at the last bolt it is an easy but run out traverse up and left for the Cat Walk anchors. This option makes the route 120'.

Location

Begin 20 feet left of Curiosity Corner at a dead tree at the base of a nice grey slab.

Protection

2 bolts, small TCU, #2,3 cam

Added Webbing and Quicklinks to Curiosity Corners Tree as it was too icy and wet to make it over to Cat Walk. We needed a 70m to lower, 60 might have worked with a Rap. Mar 2, 2015
