Description 

A pretty good wide fingers corner crack that protects quite well. It is a good starter trad route but unfortunately it is too short to be one of the better climbs at Lily Pond. Once at the top I setup an anchor using smaller cams. You can scramble back down if you walk towards 'The Pig' route but watch out for the loose blocks. Not sure if this has been climbed/named before therefore I called it 'Caterpillar' because a beautiful caterpillar was found just before climbing the route at the base. If someone has info on its origins, let me know.

Protection 

Cams to 1" and a couple 0.5" cams to setup a belay anchor on top.
