Description Suggest change

This small area has a dense collection of routes including the mega-classic namesake route Screaming Yellow Zonkers. SYZ alone should inspire a visit to this section of woodchuck ledge.

Getting There Suggest change

Follow the main Woodchuck ledge approach trail until you reach the stunning dead-vertical section of the caterpillar wall. To your left is a short, dirty, and loose gully [photo]. Ascend this gully to the base of the Zonkers wall, which will be obvious based on the stunning SYZ crack on display in the middle of the face.
