Description

This fun route is on the West Face of Der Zerkle, far left end. Romp up jugs and huecos through a short overhang and blunt arete.

Protection

4 protection bolts, 2 bolt anchor.
Worth doing. If climb is supposed to go right at the fourth bolt, it would definitely fall into the contrived category. One star. May 7, 2006

We were confused as to what was expected of us after the last (4th) bolt. I moved left, and the climbing suddenly became easy and I found myself above the top anchor. While lowering off, I spotted chalk off to the right and my partner headed out there. I guess this could be the required finish, but it is rather circuitous. Moving straight up after the 4th bolt did not seem 5.8, maybe somthing has broken off?

Anyway, this is a fun and worthwhile route. Oct 2, 2005

Intimidating looking, and the crux is perplexing, but it probably really is only 5.8. A bit crispy at the second bolt.

Neverthess, a worthy and exciting "moderate" outing if combined with What if You're Not and P1 of Hell Freezes Over. Oct 11, 2004

The moves are not hard, per se, but I think some 5.8 leaders are going to be a little befuttled around the 3rd bolt. Oct 4, 2004
