About Crabby Appleton Area:

Description: This area sits directly across from Cat in the Hat on Mescalito. It's namesake climb is supposedly excellent for the grade. Some scary sport and trad routes line the gully next to this formation on both the left and right. The east side of the gully also houses an escape route for those who attempt Magic Triangle.

Approach: Approach as per Cat in the Hat, but continue up the wash for a while, then work your way left toward the right wall in the gully on your left hand side. Routes start after some scary 4th and 5th class moves.
