Description

Z-Cracks is on the Northeast side of King of the Throne. It is aptly named, as the crack forms some form of a Z. The climb is only about 50 feet in length. Jam up and slightly left, then up a steep right facing dihedral, then exit left in a bulging hand crack (the crux). After pulling the hand crack, set an anchor from large cams.

There is a set of fixed anchors which rap off the opposite side of the formation. Only one rope needed.

Protection

Standard rack - mainly hand sized pieces. Bigger stuff needed for an anchor (3 or 3.5 - 5 camalots).
