This is climb # 11 in the guide.

Again, mostly due to the heat of the day, we only did the first (5.8) pitch, but this looked like a nice multi-pitch climb.

START - At a dirty-ish left-facing corner about 20 ft right of the "upside-down-bottomless" buttress of "Skate-y Cat" (photo & photo of sketch). There is a large, somewhat-lose, white flake left of the corner and about 15-20 ft up. (lead photo)

P1 - Climb up the less-dirty-than-it-seems corner, then step left onto the flake (belayer may wish to be behind a sturdy tree!) Now we climbed up left of the bolt to another bolt above the ledge. Straight up and over seemed 5.8, but moving right to a second bolt and up seemed about 5.5. 110-115 ft Rap with a 70m rope)

P2, 3 , 4 and 5 are described in the guide and are listed at 5.7, 5.8, 5.6, and 5.6


Draws and usual rack.
