Climb up the slab and then make 3-6 moves through the roof crack to the lip(crux) then move up into a nice handcrack above.


The easy slab that is just to the right of the main roof section in the middle of Zoo Wall. Look for the roof about 40-50 feet up with a single splitter that is divided at the lip.


All gear.

This is actually a great route. The crack is kind of wavy in width, so you just find the spots that fit you and mild the jams.

I think that this is a super sandbag at .10b. For a while there it was rated .11a by a lot of people who know better.

10b is the old school rating... example... Dr. Coolhead was rated 10a by the Lohn book, which it's been upgraded to 10d, a more appropriate letter in my book.
