Start of Top Cat


Top Cat is a two pitch trad variation to the initial pitches of Gweilo. Rap, or finish on Gweilo or Ward's Groove.

P1: Climb the lefthand crack. Move left to belay on the Gweilo anchors.
P2: Step back right and continue up the crack on easier terrain. Cruxy and committing moves at the top. Use the Gweilo anchors.


Climb Prelude, and move the belay to the right: either at the small tree, or the chain anchor further right.


The crack is quite varied, and takes gear from tiny cams and stoppers (e.g., 0 TCU) up to #4 camalot.
