I have been dreaming of this one for a long time.

Solo hard-Scrambled “Cat in the Hat”, climbed past the top of the route on some class 3/4, then up a tight chimney pitch (maybe 5.7) that I had to take my UD FKT Vest off for before some final scrambling to the summit register. Spent a bit on summit then descended the normal rappel gully. I think ? the rap gully may have been a bit slow would like to research the class 4 descent to the north...

TH to Summit: 1:17:14
1min, 53sec on Summit
Summit to TH: 1:06:47
Total TH-TH: 2:25:44

This can certainly go faster. Excited to see what people figure out :)
