Start on the left side of the ledge (where it is still comfortable to walk along the ledge) and climb up the dihedral to the bolts at the top.

The guidebook suggests continuing right under the large roof and exiting in the corner at the top there.


Far left side of the Zealous Wall, at the ledge where the buttress sends the path down below toward Dog Wall.


Small to mid-sized cams.

Once you get by the lower well protected dihedral section you will be in for a run out to the anchor. The climbing is only low grade 5, but a fall while clipping the anchor would likely make you deck. You can always downclimb and remove the pro if you were planning to skip the roof.
