A proud new line at South Bliss, Ground Zero sits, remarkably, 20 feet from the long time classic Rusty Nail, but clearly had never been climbed as of 5.4.11 ...
This stellar left hand arete is guarded by a tough jump start to catch a positive right facing sidepull.... from there its 20 feet of smears and slaps to a less than positive high rollin' top out.
Ground zero is a world class line and an awesome addition to an already great area. Its remarkable this giant gold wall sat unsent for so many years... current consensus is V6, but as it cleans up that could go in either direction.
Bring ALL your foam.
