Description 

The Cat's Ass is a short but enjoyable wall. Known for it's stout routes and predictably dry conditions on solid, unquarried rock.

Cat's Ass has been climbed in every month of the year due to it's perfect aspect and little runoff. If you're up there in the spring, shovel the top back and you'll have dry conditions in no time.

Getting There 

The only wall the can be seen while driving up the driveway to the parking lot. Park in the quarry and hike toward the right end of the quarry. Hike up a short stone staircase and you'll be at the left end of the wall. The first route encountered is Eye of the Cougar and the right rising crack of It's Only Internment

The Cat's Ass 5.11d 7a 24 VIII 25 E5 6a  Vermont : Bolton Area : ... : Cat's Ass Wall
Delicate face climbing leads to an undercling move over a bulge. Some more moves lead to the crux which is a big lock-off using a small crimp to a sloping lip that must be mantled for the RP. Crux can be a heart-breaker. Probably the best pound for pound route in the quarry....[more]   Browse More Classics in Vermont
