Description 

This route follows an obvious easy dyke to an overlap onto a bolted slab. The first bolt is 15m+ high above easy climbing with one technical slab move to put the bolt in reach. Many will bring a #1 and/or #2 to protect the last move to this bolt.

It is possible to trend high, unprotected, and slightly off route left to a tree (dirty and broken), sling it, then traverse right onto the slab at the second bolt. Decent option if you forgot the cams.

Location 

You can find this route to the right of Raging Duck at the far left and lower face of Neat and Cool wall. Look for the in-cut dyke.

Protection 

#1 or #2 cam. 3 quickdraws to top out anchors with chains. This climb tops out on the Cat Crack ledge.

Bring a #2 or #3 camalot for the horizontal crack. There is also a decent but weird piece that can be placed on the way up to the horizontal crack. Easier than its neighboring route Raging Duck.

Yes, you'll want a #2 or #3 for the horizontal. Good climbing.
