Nuria making her way through the crux.

Description 

More overhanging then it looks!

Start on the biggest wall at the bottom of a right diagonal crack that has huge jugs and handjams, layback your way up the crack to gain the horizontal, once here traverse right 15 ft then find your way up the cruxy part to the top , a real full-value climb! Dont forget your small cams for the crux.


Location 

Obvious line up the biggest wall in the middle of the cliff.

Protection 

Sucks up gear, remember to extend the lower stuff.

A fun TR variation to this one is straight up the face. The line in the shadow of the tree in this photo, mountainproject.com/images/39/... A short traverse left to get the block hold was the crux. This start gives the route a more sustained feeling, meeting up in the big horizontal part, before the second crux.

Is this not the same climb as Z-crack?

I've heard this one get called Z Crack, Zig Zag, and Forearm Frenzy... Once you leave the large horizontal you get into the business and its usually much dirtier.

I've found lots of snake skins in the large horizontal... adds some excitement.

I nominate this route as the best trad line in CT. It would be a classic anywhere in the world.

this route is so good. I cant believe how many climbers in this state have NOT lead this. It should be numero uno on every CT climber's tick list. LEAD IT!

one of the biners on the anchor is worn quite a bit, not sharp yet but just heads up
