Decent route for the grade. Bring your garden tools for this one. This is short and sweet, and really has big stances.


On Left Zoo Wall, start in the corner just right of Side Saddle and climb the ledges up left.


Decent gear, gear anchor.

Picture for Slap Roof route. the beginning is just a 8 foot scramble or so. Crux is about 15 feet up when the crack thins down. Get some high feet! Good boulder to rap at top, or you can use the tree. We did both. Left webbing on tree. good first trad climb.

Route is definitely 5.6 with a hard start. You will need a spot on this one.

This route is much tougher if you start in the corner. Crux is the first move that I think goes 5.8. Anticipated an easy warm-up on lead but, found the first move was stout for its grade.

Should take smaller protection, used a number 2 cam and lower with a set of nuts. we used a number 4 at the very beginning, but probably unneeded.
