Description 

Shaded most of the day, stays wet throught out morning on somedays. Sevral worthwhile routes exist here. 2 bolts exist on the 80' high belay ledge angled/positioned for proper rope threading for rappelling.

Getting There 

Park at the Cold Air Cave pulloff. It's the third pulloff on your right if you're coming from the town of Delaware Water Gap. up on the side there should be a little cave with some graffiti on it. Go on the trail heading up and right, a few trees will be marked with blue blazes. You should be going up next to the large scree field. The first wall that the trail comes to is called the practice wall. To the left of the practice wall, around the arete, the first left-facing wall is called the CAT WALL. Pussy toes starts where the obvious traverse ledge to the practice wall starts at ground level, and goes pretty much straight up from there. You will come to a belay ledge with some bolts about 80' up, right next to the second tree on the wall from the ground. Second pitch is more obvious.

Pussytoes 5.5 4b 13 IV+ 11 MS 4a  PA : Northeast Ridges and Valley... : ... : d. Cat Wall
Climb the middle of the cat wall starting right where the "Cat Walk" traverse to the practice face begins. There is a bolted belay next to a medium size tree directly above, halfway up the wall. It is 5.5, but you may have to hunt for the 5.5 moves, a direct line will be a bit harder. Gear in the beginning seemed sparse, better up high. For P2, the crux is right off the belay ledge. Start just left of the belay/tree and move up in an alcove, Get good gear and pull the overhang, then sprint up 70...[more]   Browse More Classics in PA
