|The Nappy Dugout
Climb a slightly wandering line on gray limestone that turns to beautiful, textured orange rock at the top. Z Man is mostly moderate climbing with one hard pull at 2/3 height. There are a lot of good holds on this route, but it is sometimes hard to find them. Look for the chalk, move your feet, feel around, and you should find them.
Z Man was named for my new son Zeke, born a few days before I cleaned and bolted this line in a flurry of energy.
On the right side of the Nappy Dugout, this is two routes to the left of Ivory Tower but starting below the starting ledge for Ivory Tower, PMS, etc. at a new base area with this new route and Mr. Cranky Pants, which is the next route to the right.
10 bolts and anchor.

Still pretty dirty and dusty, but it should clean up into a nice line.
