The crux is really getting to the chains from the sixth bolt. Incredible line.


One line left of Zen Fen.


Well bolted (6)

It may help to keep going straight up after the last bolt, then reach over to the chains and clip with left hand. Jul 6, 2009

Great route. Definitely more crimpy than Zen Fen. More fun too. Clipping the anchors is quite exciting. I agree with the previous commentor that it's better to go straight up then proceed to reach over and clip. Especially if you have lanky-monkey arms like me.

I thought Mini Meditation was more dynamic/creative though! So I'd give that a try next if you smoked this route. Oct 30, 2012

great route, I did find getting from the last bolt to chains was a little awkward though. I really enjoyable climb! Sep 15, 2014

Really good climbing. So many edges, angles, and bulges to work on. This will be love at "Onsight" for any intermediate climber. May 8, 2017
