Catfish Rising @ Kalk Bay

Post by zoed » Tue Aug 24, 2010 7:41 am

Anyone got the beta for Catfish Rising (22) at Kalk Bay - we played around on it for a while the other day and could not work out the move between 2nd and 3rd bolt (from under the roof, going up to hand-jam in crack on left and up to the rail by 3rd bolt...???) Seems way harder than its grade or we just don't have the secret beta.
Any advice appreciated, we were left totally befuddled.

I tried it as well!!
I'm relatively new to grade 22s - but it does seem WAY harder than others I've climbed!!
I cant help but feel I was missing something really obvious..
It left me totally confused and I'd LOVE to get back there again with some solid beta!!!

If anyone has beta PLEASE post it!!!

Thanks!! :)

You could try getting your right foot up. Or was it left. Or maybe keep them both low. Or maybe the feet werent the problem! try getting your either your right or your left hand up - probably not at the same time though.
good luck, hope that helps. :thumleft:

Don't have the beta but have heard somewhere that the routes are graded as if they were bolder problems not sport climbs, and consequently might seem a bit harder than other sports routes. Where I heard this and from whom I can't remember so I could just be spewing utter crud. I also have a feeling that xmod did some bolting in that area so he might have the beta for you.

Awesome Jimbo! Thanks! I used your beta and it totally worked! It was so good that I wasn't even climbing Catfish Rising and it still worked! :lol:
