An older taped steep crimp testpiece. This was I think the first or second climb I taped in CATS along with the Bear Problem. Much less powerful than the more recent Petzl, but of a similar difficulty I would say. Organic is much more tension and staying on the wall through crimp strength than much else. Even the moves that feel powerful are not all that large, they are just off of small holds and bad feet. Here is the video:
The video does not really do many of the holds justice, the most miserable is the very last hold before the finish, it is literally smaller than the majority of foot holds at the Spot, but somehow you can move off of it.

First Ascent: Daniel Woods
Other Ascents: Paul Robinson, James O'Connor
