Description

Pitch 1 is 110' feet and starts with a 5.7+ crux, a ballsy R-rated climb up steep slab. You'll be 35' above the deck before the first piece of gear. To start, step right on to a grassy ledge 15’ up the slab and move to the center.

Crimp your way up unprotected black slab to small right arcing overlap with a finger pod to its left (critical gear placement).

Traverse left to smaller cracks. Climb to lighter colored slab with twin finger cracks that nearly join at the top. Continue up handcrack and belay from vertical cracks above small ledges next to left facing corner.

P2 5.6 140’ G:
Follow the obvious blocky left rising crack to a right facing corner. Step right after corner and continue up to gully at the top lefthand side of the wall. Crawl through a vertical womb of cedar to a 10 inch diameter pine tree and belay.

Location

Start: About halfway down the Marcy side of the gorge. From The Cat’s Meow on the Feline Wall, walk to the bottom lefthand side of the slab then up slightly to avoid mossy slab.

Descent: Descend from a stout pine tree on the top left of the wall. A bomber cedar 100' down makes a great second rappel anchor.
