Split by a large prowl the wall is split into a left and right sections. Both sides have quality lines. The right side lines are the longer of the two.
From the parking area follow the trail into the narrows. Zoo Wall will be on your right, a well defined trail switches back up to the base and is easy to identify. Just look for The Dihedral and it's signature roof.
Here is a pretty good layout of the routes at Zoo Wall. This shot was taken from the other side of the canyon. It will look a little different during approach. All the climbs on the left can be accessed by climbing through the cave next to The Dihedral. Be careful, as it can be really slick when it has been wet.

Want to test your friction skills? This is the route! Working the steep face on micro edges will have your tips burning and only great footwork will get you through. The lower moves are protected by a small cam in the lower crack and bolts up above. The crux is passing the 1st bolt, with some different options. I prefer to work it straight up focusing on balancy feet. Some like moving right to a juggy ledge to overcome. Work the thin edges to the top and keep out of Alice's crack!...[more] Browse More Classics in OK
