Do not park in the residential neighborhood! Park in the designated lot MORE INFO >>>


Follow 5 bolts up a steep slab with two overlaps. Crux may be getting to the first bolt. Some may want to stick clip. A combination of technical slab and and two mantle/lock-off moves will see you to the chains on the Cat Crack ledge.


This route is the leftmost route at the Neat and Cool wall found just below and left the main face. This climb tops out on the Cat Crack ledge.


5 quickdraws to chained anchors. Optional #1 or #2 may fit the first horizontal crack.

Good fun, a slab for those who don't like slab, it's a bit steeper than usual but well-featured.

Unless you're very confident in your slab technique you'll want to protect the first horizontal break. A 0.75 camalot fits best here. There is also room for a 0.3 camalot at the upper horizontal.

This climb originally had two bolts before it was retro bolted. Guidebook has it as 5.10b but I felt that it was more like a 5.10c.

This climb is now well protected, optionally bring some cams as mentioned in the previous post.

First crux is getting past the first bolt to the horizontal. Second crux is getting off the horizontal and onto the upper slab.

I got a perfect #2 camalot at the horizontal tucked in the back. And I also a nice yellow C3 in the upper crack between bolt 4 and 5 (not that it is terribly needed)l
