"Gotcha Bush" begins at the base of the ...


The crux of this route is navigating around/through the maze of "cats claw" bushes that now guard the start. Begin at the base of two parallel right leaning water grooves that extend 3/4 of the way up the face. Jam and palm the shallow grooves until you reach the aplite dike that diagonals across the upper face. Continue up the dike to the top. Place an anchor in the crack at the top as for Shongo Pavi & Hans Solo.


Middle of Zippy Rock, begins at ground level, 50 feet left of Jedi Master & Shongo Pavi.


Small to medium cams in the water grooves. The upper face is unprotected. Medium cams for the anchor.
