Starting Katmai Disaster


Sit start on the start hold at the very bottom of the overhung traversing rock put your feet on good start holds and pull up a good two finger pocket then reach to a bad little dent in the rock bring your hand up for another two finger pocket when you reach the good jug holds you will be fine just keep traversing right until you can't anymore then go straight up for the finish

Awesome climb just dangerous yet again be careful of the sharp jagged rocks underneath you.


Walk up from Prow Wow until you see Where the Red Fern Grows turn around and you will see a boulder with a fairly long traverse on it and a horrible landing


Pads and a good spotter for sake of the rocks being under you

Finally did this climb today, found new beta that worked for me, I recommend this climb to everyone, it could be a classic with a few more people climbing it.
