Description

Start up the ramp after a short scramble on a flat dirt-covered ledge. Start just below the sloping ledge and to the right of Skimbleshanks. Trend right and up into the dihedral, and pull out just right of the roof. Head back left of a small bush, and continue up past four more bolts to a two-bolt anchor.

Location

This is right of Skimbleshanks and left of Old Deuteronomy.

Protection

12 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor. A #3 could be used before the first bolt, as you traverse above the ramp. It is definitely a little exposed on easier terrain to the first bolt. Use a 70m rope, and set a couple directional draws above and below the roof for the follower.

A great addition to Catslab! I've been looking at that dihedral to the right of Skimbleshanks for years, wondering if it would go on gear, but the pro seemed iffy. Thanks for finally bolting it! The middle section (crux) seemed on par with MacCavity in terms of grade, just a few more moves in the crux. FYI, we clipped the first bolt of Skimbelshanks to protect the traverse in the beginning.

Great middle section. Tricky moves through the dihedral, with transition to slab climbing on the face. I need to go back and climb it again because I was thinking 5.10A. The rest of the route is mostly below grade Jul 23, 2016

I thought this was a little more difficult than Crystal Cat, the other new 9+ on the wall. It is a good route and the climbing is good. It is nice to have a #3 Camalot as there is exposure at the bottom. Jun 17, 2016
