One of Nemo's best climbs at the grade. This is the bolted line a couple of meters right of Cat's Tail. Climb the face right of the arĂȘte, and the face above, until you can get a closer look at the large roof. Take a deep breath. Exit the roof using the obvious crack. Fight the pump to the top.

Bring a long stick clip. My stick clip doesn't reach the first bolt and soloing up about 15' (even on easy jugs) to lean over to the adjacent wall to clip is not super fun. Otherwise this is a spectacular line. Easy fun climbing leads to the thin first mini-crux followed by steep juggy climbing to a roof crux and some awesome exposure. The climb doesn't end after the roof crux, though, as pumpy, thought-provoking climbing after that will spit you off if you aren't focused. One of my favorites at Nemo. Nov 28, 2017

I have to disagree with Edek's comment about the first bolt. While the bolt is rather high, the climbing up the corner to reach it is ridiculously easy. Excellent route! Aug 17, 2018
