BETA PHOTO: Zombie Woof Rock, Northwest Face - Bats With Aids ...
Zombie Woof Rock is closed to climbing. MORE INFO >>>

Description 

Climb a smooth slab with a thin, curving dike to a horizontal crack, place some gear, and then move left up the face past a bolt to another horizontal crack (more gear). Mantle the horizontal which becomes a small ledge, clip a bolt and then laugh as you realize how far away those finishing holds really are. The height-dependant crux is well-protected (you're basically toproped), but if under 6'0" tall requires a leap of faith to grab the top. Gear belay and simul-rap off - as no fixed anchors exist atop this formation.

A novelty climb to be sure, but it does offer some enjoyable climbing in a less visited portion of the greater Real Hidden Valley Area.


Location 

You'll find this around and right from Zombie Woof on the smooth northwest face of the formation.


Protection 

2 bolts (5/16"), gear to 2.5"

I have placed hundreds of 5/16th bolts in the Park;....many have not been replaced with 3/8th inch;....many people were using them back then;....they are sort of bogus; especially in funk rock, but in good rock;...bomber!
