Description

This looks like a fairly new line to the right and downhill from the start of Grizabella.

The start is slightly overhanging and still a bit dirty, but the holds seem fairly solid. Pull straight up the first three bolts on a combination of jugs and crimps to a good rest, clip another bolt, and pull a small bulge. After that, it's pretty easy to the anchor.

Once it cleaned up, it may be a fun little route that's different from all the slabby stuff at Catslab. It just needs more traffic. Bring a brush and help clean this thing!

Location

It is to the right and downhill from the start of Grizabella.

Protection

7 bolts. There is a two bolt anchor with chains and a single rap ring.

Fun climb with interesting moves. Still plenty of loose rock all over this route. Belay off to the side and wear a helmet! May 14, 2017

This route has cleaned up pretty well and is a lot of fun. One of the steeper 5.9s you'll find. Short but sweet! Nov 2, 2017
