Cat Power V5 - Second Ascent

Despite publishing a guidebook with well over 1000 boulder problems, Nova Scotia's most prolific developer Ghislain Losier still has hidden gems in reserve! 

Cat Power V5 is a 2002 vintage rig located a literal stones throw from the popular Lake Boulder in the LOC. Despite this, it remained hidden and unrepeated for nearly 2 decades. It's a short, but powerful line, which gives the undercling crux of Tsunami V8 a run for it's money. The sloper is subtle at an akward angle requiring good balance and core control to obtain the match without being ejected.

This is a great addition to the Lake and Sattelite area, and I'm psyched to see it rescued from obscurity for the next decade of climbers to enjoy.
