BETA PHOTO: Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, 5.10


This is a curving finger crack 50 feet to the right (west) of Exorcist. The rock quality is not the best but the climbing is very nice and the gear is great.

Start up a loose lieback / finger crack that becomes a powerful finger crack traverse straight right where it meets the wide crack of What, 5.8.


Follow the upper finger crack part of IT, 5.9 as a second pitch. Traverse left (east) to Exorcist's rappel anchors, one rope rap just makes it.


Standard crack gear, bring extra small cams from 0.25" to 0.5" and a 4" cam for What. 1"-3" cams for the belay.
