Richard from Australia on Night Grooves.

Description 

Night Grooves is now the farthest left bolted line on the Zen Garden section of the Lost Angel Wall. Scramble down the gully in between Dream Dome and the Lost Angel wall, and turn left down a 4th class gully to the good ledge left of the large tree, or alternately rap down from the anchors atop Time Traveler (exposed).

This route starts about 15 feet left of tTime Traveler on the obvious ledge. It is a thought provoking slab climb with very thin crimp features and thumb mantels characterizing the main crux moves which come early, and then the route stays consistent until around the fifth bolt with fun moves onto the upper slab with one last bolt before the anchors.


Protection 

6 bolts to the anchors on top of Time Traveler (a shoulder length sling is helpful for last bolt).
