Climber on Zig Zag.


The first 40-50 feet or so require small pro placements, and then the crack widens and takes bigger pro. Follow this seam/crack to the chains at the top of Jackel.


Once on the Sun Deck, traverse out and right to gain the start of an obvious, zig-zagging crack.


Standard rack.

A blue (#1) TCU protects the opening moves off the sun deck really well. From there, make some fun balancy moves till you get sinker hand jams to finish it off. Great climb. Underrated in my opinion.
