This climb is onthe far right of the Cat Eye Wall or Bolt Wall. Climb the corner or the flake to the upper roof and undercling left around the roof. If you're bouldering this climb, don't fall! It's a long way down. If you're toproping it, there is a spooky swing on the fall.
This route has a bouldering rating, but it's much safer as a toprope problem. There are bolts at the top, so the risk of bouldering this doesn't make sense anyway. This could be a lead climb too with small cams in a good crack.
: you can protect with Stoppers and up to orange TCUs.

Good route for practicing gear placement - bomber locks, nice feet, and nice final moves out of the roof.
