Shirley leading Quasar. Just above her (I think) ...

Description 

This route lies immediately left of Ground Zero and about 30 feet right of Cruel Sister. Climb juggy rock for about 15 feet to the first gear opportunity. From here follow the finger and hand crack, with the crux coming early on. Most folks stop at the first set of anchors.


Location 

This route lies immediately left of Ground Zero and about 30 feet right of Cruel Sister. The frothy rock that makes up the start of the climb makes it easy to find.


Protection 

Gear to 2.5 inches. Small cams (up to Yellow TCU or Green Alien) are pretty useful.

To the first anchor feels pretty easy compared to other gorge 10a's. The extensions offered me a whopping one piece of gear and some pretty tricky face climbing above it.

Went straight up from the ground and I was pleased to have a purple C3, green alien, and blue mastercam. Sustained climbing above. Largest piece I place was green camalot. Personally, I think this is harder climbing than Cruel Sister.

Agree with the comments above. The section between the lower and upper anchor involved some rock climbing above your last piece.
