Fat Cats....


Look for this short cliff on the right as you enter the Cathouse canyon.

Slab with 2 bolts to steeper moves past one more bolt.


Lower Cathouse.


3 bolts to 2 bolt belay/rappel anchor.

The finish past the last bolt is a bit contrived, since you could step right and climb an easy crack to the top, but the move past the bolt is fun.

fun slab climb, a little grainy, but should clean up with traffic

A worthy warm-up if you like slab and are cragging in the Cathouse anyway
