Fluffy Kitten Wall, Cat o' Nine Tails

Post by skykilo » Thu Aug 19, 2010 7:02 pm

Hopped on another good one this weekend, up to the Fluffy Kitten Wall for a north-facing respite from the heat with some elevation.

The fifth pitch was really cool, mixed bolted and gear-protected

Just a lot of fun moves

Then we bailed, because we were late for a very important date. Now I need to go up there yet again to finish both this route and the Tiggers.

I think thats the route Kat and I got shut down on. I remember some hard scruffy face climbing. Nice work.

There was definitely some scruff and a bail 'biner on the next-to-last bolt. The next pitch looked sweet. We should head up there again, mang. Let me know if you want to Squish it again one of these weekends.
