  • Description 

    A 4-star boulder problem, but only 2 star as a route.

    Step into the Gregory Canyon Amphitheatre, and the first somewhat large rock on the right (East) is T-Zero. The smooth, overhanging, west face sports a single route for TR. The sequence above the ledge at 15 feet is physical and a little cruxy for 3 moves. Tall people with powerful fingers will make short work of it.

    It's like a boulder problem due to its lack of length. Walk to the North end, drop off the east side, then scramble North to the ground (5.2).


    There isn't any that would stop you from disaster. Don't kid yourself about a "lead." If you don't like soling, top-rope it. A big guy pulling very hard might snap a key hold too- let that be incentive not to solo it.

    The TR up to can be set with large cams and some stoppers out to the right, or some cordelette around features.

    Was on it today & paying very close attention to the landing on a dozen or so laps. The crux for me is far enough out that if you popped you might graze the ledge, but you'd land in the big rocks 20' down. The crux of the route is X unless you are quite tall and can skip going to the knob out right and eliminating the crux.
