This is a 2nd pitch to the The Purrrfect Puppy or Stray Cat.

I'm posting it separate to avoid consensus grade confusion. I don't want to scare anyone away from the first pitch, since it's so fun and easy¬Ö.

From the anchor of either route mentioned, scramble up to a big ledge. Clip the first bolt as you start up the steepening headwall. Steep rock and jugs lead to a tricky mantel at the 3rd bolt. The last bolt protects a crux lip encounter. Right above the overhang is another nice ledge and the anchor.


Start from either the The Purrrfect Puppy or Stray Cat anchor.


4 bolts, 2 bolt anchor

FYI, we got to the ground with one 70m rope. Just be careful, and rap to the climber's left to some nice ledges. Jun 4, 2016

Did this again today, and all holds felt solid. You do forget moves after a year's absence. Oct 23, 2015

Pretty fun climb. Worth getting up there. Both roofs are pretty interesting to get through. If only it was longer. Mar 22, 2015

A fun, short addition with two overhangs to surmount. Makes a quality 1-1/2 pitch sport route. One of the key holds to pull the first (smaller) roof is scary thin but seems strong enough. Maybe not for long. Oct 31, 2014

This pitch is short, but it is fun if you want something more challenging than "Purrrfect Puppy ". The holds at the crux are not obvious but are very good once you locate them. The crux feet are poor. The third bolt is hard to see from below. It is only 5 or so feet above the second bolt. Oct 15, 2014
