Description 

The left end of the east face of the Zebra Rocks has two primary flat faces, and each of these has a "dog leg" or "lighning bolt" crack on it. The larger one to the left is Such A Line (flaring OW) and the one on the right is the friendlier looking Ice Cream For Crow.

This line climbs up the initial tricky moves of Ice Cream For Crow (protected on gear to 3") and then traverses right for some ways (don't fall- 5.7) to reach the first of two bolts. Continue up and right to reach the arete up high.

Belay from the anchors on Horse of a Different Color, just to the climber's right (north). To descend, rap the same.


Protection 

Mixed. Take gear from .5 to 3" (large pro just before the mental crux traverse)
