Description 

Zebra is the right route of two found on the right wall of White Cliff. Walk up the 3rd class, left-trending ramp to the right set of bolts. Follow the line up the "zebra striped" wall to a 2-ring anchor on top. A 60m rope just makes it. Tie a knot in your rope or you run the risk of dropping your leader off the end of the line, risking a potential 40' fall to the ground.

Location 

Head up the White Cliff trail. At the 'toe' of the apron, the trail forks, turn right and head East along the wall to a base of the 3rd class ramp. Walk up the ramp @ 10m to the base of the route. A 70m rope is recommended, it can be done with a 60m rope with caution.

Protection 

10 bolts, 2-ring anchor on top.

Nice route. one can set an anchor for the belayer with some large cams - #4.5 or so. Crux is between 3rd and 4th bolt. Felt a bit hard for 7+, or maybe it was my first climb on this rock.

FYI. I was on this route today and around the 6th bolt I think (3 or 4 bolts from the top) there's a big, loose block. It's not totally detached, but it spooked me enough to get away from it, also if it were to come off, it'd go straight onto the belayer.
