Description

First pitch of Catharsis. Follow bolts up the slightly overhanging prow towards the high first bolt. Climb over large edges to a stance below the overhang and clip. Use cracks and jugs to mount the face, then continue reaching and pulling to the anchor ledge. This anchor is shared with the first pitch of Aerial Display (5.8) and Superstrings (10c). You can step out right to another anchor and continue up Mixing It Up (10b) or go for the full Catharsis experience (11+).

You can either stop at the first anchor you get to, or continue up and right to another anchor. For the 2nd pitch of Catharsis, from the 2nd anchor, you have a couple options.
1. Mixing It Up: Head up the hand crack up and left onto the finishing slab. Not all that interesting. Gear to 3". 5.10b.
2. Catharsis (2nd Pitch): Head straight up off the ledge into cruxy, bolt protected climbing until you can head left up a seam with small gear. 5.11d. Nov 1, 2017
