Zombie Woof Rock is closed to climbing. Details
Zombie Woof Rock is now closed to climbing due to native rock art in the vicinity. The NPS has signs alerting climbers to the closure both at the rock and on the approach trail.
DescriptionClimb a smooth slab with a thin, curving dike to a horizontal crack, place some gear, and then move left up the face past a bolt to another horizontal crack (more gear). Mantle the horizontal which becomes a small ledge, clip a bolt and then laugh as you realize how far away those finishing holds really are. The height-dependant crux is well-protected (you're basically toproped), but if under 6'0" tall requires a leap of faith to grab the top. Gear belay and simul-rap off - as no fixed anchors exist atop this formation.
A novelty climb to be sure, but it does offer some enjoyable climbing in a less visited portion of the greater Real Hidden Valley Area.
