Crag dogs get all the love, but what about all the climber cats out there? We asked our readers to send us photos of their feline crushers—and weren't sure if we'd get any submissions. Luckily, we did! Here are nine badass crag cats.
Climber cat Millie seconds the West Slabs (5.5) up Mt. Olympus in Utah.
Halo loves being outdoors, especially with his cat mama, Rachel Mitchell. As the feline crusher of Cooper's Rock, this leash-trained cat knows how to spend a fall afternoon in West Virginia.
At Kangaroo Point Cliffs, Brisbane, Australia. I let Gandalf try his paws at climbing and he loved it immediately—too much. I had to stop him from going higher!
Rigby has climbed in three states at just seven months old. He got his first taste of lowering/rappelling here at Kootenai Canyon in Montana.
Our Crag cat, Zhiro, hitches a ride to the boulders in Castle Rock, California.
Crusher kittens Hank and Dean hang out in Leavenworth, Washington.
Mugster loves to mountain bike (in the pack) and hike. She jumps in the car on her own and loves to chill at the crag and give the evil eye to the dogsters.

This is popcorn. He's been climbing since he was six months old and loves weekends in São Bento do Sapucaí, Brazil.
