|Zebra Cliffs North Face
This is yet another great climb established by M. Waugh et al. on the Zebra Cliffs. The route begins left of the Sand Truck and ascends the obvious crack in the middle of the block. Near the top the crack ends and a short traverse left is necessary to gain another thin crack. Placing pro is somewhat challenging in the upper crack where the crux is located.
Small stoppers and cams to .5" for pro with a few long runners. Some of the placements are challenging but solid. Cams are necessary for an anchor.

Good gear before the traverse left into the second crack. At the base of the second crack, I was able to fiddle in a #00 cam and #4 BD stopper before firing the crux tips lieback moves. The traverse moves are tough too! Good feet with little or no hands. Reachy folks are probably at an advantage here.
My 400th route in JTree. A fun, challenging lead.
