Description 

Long and awesome. First half is somewhat thin. First crux lies in a left-angling traverse after 3rd bolt to a rest ledge. Feels a bit scary. Second crux comes almost directly after this ledge on some suddenly muy vertical rock. Small pockets for fingers but very thin for feet. Pull through and cruise to the top. Rap off. Jump up and down and give your belayer a cupcake for good measure.


Location 

I don't have good beta for finding this route. My partner and I did not enter Zonerland from the "correct" gully, and we initially climbed a different bolted route (believing it was ToaB) far up the hill from where this route really lies. Later, scouting around on the lower part of the ridge, we found it. The route faces north and lies near the southeast end of the Zonerland amphitheater. It is long and outstanding-looking, so once you finally find it, you'll probably know it.


Protection 

8 bolts + 2 bolt anchor
