  • Description 

    This is not my route, but these 3 climbs comprise the "Overflow area" were put up by Kevin Capps to give the overflow crowd something to do, and That's good.

    Kevin thinks this will be a good beginner lead.


    All 3 routes are just north/before you get to the Catslab proper, maybe 40 feet left of Pussy and Unknown. This is the leftmost and least steep of the 3.


    6 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor with rings.

    I didn't have high expectations for this climb given the grade but did it anyway since we were there. I was pleasantly surprised at how well this line climbed. It would be a good one for someone learning to lead or a good romp for kids. It looks like the anchors may be accessible from the top.
