Lower Main Wall/East Buttress Trails Re-opened MORE INFO >>>

Description 

This is a fun crack climb with an interesting start, good position, and exposure. It is high on the main wall. From the ledge at the top of Zig Zag, a tree extends horizontally off the ledge to the east. This is the springboard. Walk out the tree as far as possible to the point where it contacts a steep face. A couple face climbing moves to the right off of the tree gain a good crack with a fixed pin. The face climbing moves can be protected with a small nut. Once in the crack, follow it all the way to the top with some interesting and balancy moves. There is a bolted anchor at the top.

Location 

The route starts by walking the horizontal tree on the top ledge of Zig Zag.

Protection 

Gear to 2" and a fixed pin

One of my favorites. There is no better place to learn to climb.
