Zebra Seam
Seasonal Raptor Closure 2012 MORE INFO >>>


This route climb the attractive left-arching corner system a short distance to the right of Zebra and shares anchors with that route. Originally led without bolts, this was a serious lead; it was later retro-bolted and has became a popular (and safe) lead.

Lieback, jam and stem your way up the corner taking full advantage of the many edges for your feet, and occasionally your hands, to a crux at the very top of the route.

An excellent climb with technical movement and a heartbreaker crux at the top (for those who pitch off there). There are no real stopper moves on this route, and if you climb efficiently and don't get overly pumped it's in the bag.


You'll find this route immediately right of Zebra Direct and two routes to the right of Gumby.


8 bolts, 2 bolt anchor/rap

The crux move of this route is somewhat contrived and totally skip-able by reaching left to the finishing jugs of Zebra Direct. I did this just after grabbing the two finger pocket before the crux and it felt mid-11ish. For the +, climb straight up using the pocket and small nubbins out right to an old bolt right of the chains. (makes a good directional)
