54m, 2 pitches. Reach the anchors atop Grizabella (5.7 - 95 feet), the farthest right route on the Catslab proper. Climb up and right along a ledge clipping two bolts with longer draws before climbing up and back left across an arete. Don't panic after the second bolt, your X-ray vision or a judicious glance around the arete will turn up the easy to clip third bolt. The route finally attacks the upper roof in a corner off of sidepulls and jugs. The belayer will be able to hear but not see the climber between the third and eighth bolts. Interesting moves around the arete and roof and fortunately well protected for the not so perfect rock quality - somewhat scaly and brittle in places. Yet all of the critical holds were solid. 10 bolts + 2 bolt coldshut anchor. 80 feet from the anchors atop Grizabella. 2 ropes or 200 foot rope needed to descend from Grizabella.
