BETA PHOTO: Zsa Zsa Gabor Memorial Boulder with the climb Mars...

Description 

Start just right of a triangular cutout at the base of the rock and climb straight up the face using steep smears and tiny handholds on impeccable stone. The crux comes at about two-thirds height as you transition slightly to the right, although it stays independent of either climb all the way to the top. Somewhat reminiscent of the route Obsidian, although easier.

The excellent rock and highly technical moves make this a fun route to do after warming up on Lesbian Lust or one of the other nearby routes. Two, maybe three stars out of five.

Location 

Located on the north side of the Zsa Zsa Gabor Memorial Boulder between the Right Side Arete and Open Container.

Comment in Vogel guide is route 'goes up centre of north face'. It took me a bit to realize that was different than the plumb line. The centre line actual angles right of the plumb line off the base. After I recognized that it was only really hard not impossible.

a fun top rope. definitely not 11c on top rope. I'd say it was 11a, on toprope of course.
