A great little route up the steep wall and bulge 2m right of The Chimney to a large ledge. It has lost holds over the years, hence the upgrade.


Excellent route with good moves. Not overly protected though and take some micros.

One of the best routes at Cat Tro with some nice moves and good gear and rests at all the right places. Well protected HS 4c in my book and recommended.

Originally did this years ago - did it again today and found it a bit sparse on pro in the central section - would agree with the uplift to VS and maybe with 4c/5a (particularly for the shorter climber .... sorry Nat)

Definitely VS 5a. Hard-ish moves at the start with rubbish gear until you're well established. First time I did this (2-3 years ago) all my gear stripped at 20ft.

That is, fell out. I didn't fall though, so it was ok.

Not sure this merits 5a when compared to Peacemaker or Pearly Gate. Still a good route though.

5 what?? I think the original grade of 4b still stands. Nice route though.
John Parker - 27/Feb/08

Easy climbing but found the gear absolutely pap.
