Eric on Katabatic Cataclysm, 5.11b


Great fun for those who wish to take the ride a bunch of times before figuring out a technastilly titillating traverse sequence with small holds stuck in a short mind phuck segment of steep yellow stone.

Start on a sketchy slab and work your way up positive holds that lead to a steep, blankety blank section. Use some tiny slopey holds and pull off a completely indecipherable sequence with a crimpy gastone to a two finger. Crank on your tips and get those feet set up just perfectly in some mystery holds while you make a big reach for a perfect pocket.

Enjoy about four more bolts of great, almost leisurely climbing that keeps you guessing. The final push to the anchors gets quite exciting, especially if you are pumped and amazed that you pulled off the katabatic blank section. Quite doable if you are patient and strong.



Third from the left at the very left-hand most side of The Thunderhead.


Bring 10 quickdraws. Open Anchors.
