DescriptionThe northwest face of the Zsa Zsa Gabor Memorial Boulder is where you'll find this short but fun route on excellent rock.
Begin just right of a triangular cutout on the north side of the boulder and lieback/smear your way along a low-angled arete to a creaky stance below a high first bolt. Steep friction on polished rock past the first bolt is the crux with more positive holds soon appearing in time for the small runout to the second bolt. Easy moves lead to the top and the anchors.
Note: The stance below the first bolt is on a creaking flake which doesn't inspire much confidence; although it doesn't seem to move if it breaks off the climb will become much harder. Given 5.8 in the Vogel guide this is definitely harder than that and while short it's worth a spin if in the area. One star out of five.
