Comments: Added a couple historic articles by the Conns (1953 and 1955) and Lawrence G. Coveney (1936) to the photo albums in my profile if anybody is interested.

Comments: "Please keep in mind this is the original route for the entire Black Hills" A. Busse

From the article posted above it appears that the 1936 party climbed at least one of the Cathedral Spires before this route.

Comments: You can also do the two pitches above Katey's Route as a single pitch with creative use of slings to alleviate rope drag. The protection at the crux is good with one very committing/fun move. Gotta love 5.3 Conn climbs!

Comments: Great Scanned article in my Photo Albums titled "Herb Conn article from June 1953 issue of Appalachia" Good early overview of the Outlets all the way to the Spires. Almost an early mini-guide with a great little map. Thanks and happy climbing, Joel

Comments: I didn't think 8 bolts in 80 feet of climbing was run out at all (maybe somebody added some since 2006 when John posted this). Enjoyable/consistent 5.8 climbing the entire route.

Comments: If you use a shoulder length runner instead of a quickdraw it cuts out the rope drag as well.

Comments: I was on this recently...no chopped bolts then. There is only 4 bolts on this route and it has always been advisable to place a nut or cam down low.

Comments: I found it in a guidebook and it is the second pitch of Ithaca Connection. Great pitch, good hands, and thoughtful feet with bolts exactly where you want them.

Comments: Climbing to the 2nd bolt is balancey and fun, but the rest is not much to speak of. I wouldn't climb it again or recommend it to anyone else.
