Large open area which stays relatively shaded most of the day in summer, and contains many quality lines (as well as a couple of lesser quality).

There is a top-roping ban in effect meaning that top-ropes may only be setup by a climber who has led the climb from the ground up. DO NOT SLING CEDARS and pad all other trees when building anchors.
Start climbers left of a small detached pillar, climb up behind and follow the bolts along a wandering line of varied climbing. A great line for the grade.
Solo up the pillar and lean over the gap to clip the first bolt. Climb through some fun crimps to the mini-roof, then left around the arete.
Follow the fun finger-crack at the left side of the main Cat's Tail wall. The crack widens to hands, after which, head left over flaky insecure blocks (through pitons) to anchors.
A short second pitch for Cat's tail. Traverse out right, then up, through many an old piton. No anchors, and few possibilities for a natural one on top.
