Description 

About thirty feet left of 'One Brick Shy,' and the huge central amphitheater of the zoo, you will find this impressive line of bolts over a gradually overhanging face. This route has three main sections, all split up by no hands rests. Start up the slightly overhanging bulge, cranking your way through jugs until the first ledge is reached. Bring a medium sized cam and place it here for optional protection, for there is a moderate runout (on easy terrain however) to the next bolt. After a nice rest, embark on part II of your journey, the steepest (and most juggy)section to another smaller ledge. The final section holds the crux for many, for although the angle lessens slightly, holds become smaller and more scarce. Efficient climbing and good resting will eventually bring you to the final, lower angle top section where the chains will be waiting.


Location 

30 feet right of the huge steep amphitheater that resides in the middle of the zoo.


Protection 

9 Bolts- Optional pro at first ledge in the form of a medium sized cam.

A #1 Camalot fits nicely in the crack above the third bolt to protect the runout.
