  • Description 

    This is not my route, but this is the rightmost of the these 3 routes that Kevin put up to ease the lines on Catslab.


    These 3 routes all take off from the same point, about 40 feet before you get to Pussy, Unknown, and The Catslab proper. This is the rightmost of the 3.


    5 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor with rings.

    A bit soft until the very last move, which is thin and crimpy.

    Fun and consistent climbing. Felt pretty easy after climbing the line to the left of it. Pretty short but worth doing if Catslab is busy.
