Flakes at Zappa's Tooth.


This is the first obvious crack on the left side of the Cavity. It follows a series of nice, clean flakes up the buttress.

Start in the dihedral and jam and stem up to the roof. Pass the roof on the right and continue up to the ledge. Go left to the face or right to more flakes.

Walk off to the south.

... all what we got here is American made, it's a little bit cheesy, but it's nicely displayed.... FZ


Some extra hand and fist-sized cams.

About 70 or 80 feet to a logical belay, from where you can scramble up and off.
