Description 

Zephyr is found towards the right side of Lower Tier. Basically it's the second route from the right side or fourth route to the right of Super Thin, the thin crack climb. Look for a first bolt with the second bolt higher up and to the left. The upper 4 bolts are pretty much in a straight line going up the steep upper face. Easier climbing gets you to the third bolt and it's here where the fun starts! Very thin, continuous face climbing for 20' past the remaining 3 bolts gets you to the top. A very good test piece for this grade!

Protection 

Six bolts to 2 bolt anchors.

I am confused as Arrow Head's description is the second one from the right and so is Zephyr's. Is zephyr the third one from the right, arrow head the second,and flatus the first plus grizzly crack as a tr off to the side?
