Scramble up blocky ledges to the first bolt. Continuous, techy, low angle climbing gets you through two bulges/mini roofs and up the right facing corner to a surprisingly easy 3rd roof. The crux is moving past the 7th bolt.


Look for the line of bolts between Blue Steel and Catwalk. Lower off with a 60m rope.


11 Bolts, Mussy Hook Anchor.

Another fun route! The hero jug and perfect foothold at the first roof are exceptional! The crux is interesting, as well. Thanks Todd and Amy!

Good fun route.

Here's a fun variation. Start up the first 3 bolts of Catwalk. Then on continue straight up to the anchors of Finger Jockey on a TR. About the same rating with some fun moves. You will pass a small bush half way up.

Funny you mention that, James. Originally, it was my intent to follow that exact line. However, those other guys put up Catwalk before I had a chance to do it, so I was forced to move the start further left. Regardless, I still think it turned out ok.

really fun route, pretty tightly (over?) bolted. would make an excellent beginner's route if one can get to the first bolt (easy steps) without falling. not sure where the 5.9 comes from, i'd go with 5.7. merman has harder moves, so does downtown man...
