4 out of 5 stars Another tick

Pretty fun, still managed the on-sight with a bad read at the top.

5 out of 5 stars fun jugs and column feature; fun roof pull; bitchy start

I sent A Thousand Meows before this, where you can climb high into the dihedral, butt scrumb it and clip its bolt 2 chillaxed. Unfortunately on Dead Cats DO Meow I tried the same thing, reaching right to clip its bolt 2 on the column.
I couldn't reach it. Sketched badly with the Elvis legs. Panicked I didn't think about just clipping 1,000 Meow's bolt 2 and bale. I downclimbed to the bitchy start and fell from there, crashing a bit. Stay low under the column and clip bolt 2 high. Then it's a fun route!
