BETA PHOTO: Lion Zion with Zebra Direct start...
Wow, this one's a doozey!
Start out on Gumby or Zebra Direct for the first 55 feet and pass the anchor at the top of Zebra Direct. Keep going up and right past some spaced out bolts on little nubs and edges. A bolted anchor comes just in time at about the same height as the second pitch of Zebra Zion. Descend in two raps with a 60m rope.
Just right of Zebra/ Zion dihedral
lots of draws (couple long) maybe 18....

Nice to see the stars! Thanks!
It's also a great variation to Zebra Zion if you don't want to carry big gear to the top. An easy traverse to the pillar on the top of the second pitch of ZZ

This route is lots of fun with constant edging and no real hard crux. Keep your weight on your feet and crimp forever.
With a 70m rope you can lower to the Zebra Direct anchors from the top. There are 8 or 9 bolts on the extension.
If linking from a lower climb put a sling on the ZD anchor and the 2nd bolt (a sling on the 1st bolt of the extension might help too).
If linking with Zebra Direct either skip the 3rd bolt or use a long sling for minimal drag.
