Description

Pagan lies immediately to the right of the classic Zig-zag crack. The route is difficult and sustained, with varying climbing. It starts by using medium edges to balance onto the initial bulge and attain the horizontal flake a the lip of the giant roof. From there hard pulls on small edges take the climber over the roof and into the hanging dihedral above. Here, some tenuous counter-pressure moves leading to another hard pull on a small side-pull pocket and undercling deposit the climber at a decent hold and a chance to grab a dab of chalk. After this brief "rest" the climber heads out of the dihedral to the right and follows a few more difficult crimps eventually ending in the upper crack of Zig-zag crack.

All-told it is fun route with interesting movement.

Pagan Rituals, as far as I can tell, heads into Zig Zag Crack at the top. Therefore, in addition to five draws, you also need a few cams and some stuff to build an anchor. Jul 1, 2007

I've bumped it up to 11d because of the horn falling off... Jun 25, 2007

The giant horn that was a good jug rest was pulled off. It changes the route a bit, and makes it just a tad harder. Jun 7, 2007
