From the ground, this is a 35m route. Or climb the first 15m and belay from the first anchor shared with Brown Noser, then the business pitch is only 20m. The climb has two variations, making it either 12b or 13a.

Pitch 1/2: Climb easy terrain past one bolt up middle slot and belay at double bolt anchor 15m.

Pitch 1: 12b if you cut left to significantly easier climbing after clipping the second to last bolt (12c for shorter folk). If you stay slightly right of the bolt line the whole way up expect 13a climbing. After about 20 feet of suspect rock, the rock quality is some of the best in Logan Canyon. Difficult movement on small crimps up a slightly overhanging wall.

Named after one of Kat's favorite TV shows.


About 10 bolts plus anchors
