Not a recommended beginner's lead.

On the left side of the Cathouse, follow the easiest line of resistance up to the first ledge at 15'. Step right from this through some easy rock with thin, tricky protection. From a stance below the midway ledge of RastaBirds to the right, choose your jug-pull-mantel, then continue right onto the grassy, dirty ledge. Climb the dihedral made up of lots of big loose blocks (actually quite fun!), then try to style your way onto the debris-covered ledge. Tenderly traverse this to the finale crack... by far the best part of the route, but only 10' of goodness. Snag jugs and clip in.


Left-most series of weaknesses up to the same anchor at RastaBirds and other left-side routes


Gear to 1" but not much for the first half
