Comments: If you use 2 x 60m ropes, you can rap from the 5th belay station to the first, and then make another rap to the ground. (2 double rope raps to the ground). The first of these raps is right to the ends of the ropes so make sure that they are 60m and make sure you have knots in the ends!
Also, as you you pull the roof of pitch two, to the right, watch for a pin (I missed it and had to settle for two lobes of a blue Alien...ugh).

Great route: Otto had gorilla balls!

Parkies said they would be investigating stability of the cliff. Kudos to the other climbers who helped get the injured party down,... more >>

Comments: This was a note I received in reply to my request for more info from the regional Access Fund rep:

It is indeed our understanding that Cat Slab, a privately owned crag, is currently closed to public access. The CMC and the Access Fund are jointly working to see what might be able to be done regarding this unfortunate closure. Sometime in the next next month or two we hope to have a better idea what the long term picture for restoring public access will look like. In the mean time we encourage... more >>
