Tiny edges up a lightning bolt shaped weakness on the left side of the Zoo.


Start a few feet left of Excessive Bail and avoid the temptation to use the corner to the left.


5 bolts to chain anchors

I should say that I really like vertical climbs on small edges, but I thought this one was excellent. After you fight through the tiny holds and bad feet, you move through some great laybacks and slopey holds. It's low commitment through the hard climbing down low because you can almost z clip through the low section. Thanks for bolting this one guys! Aug 23, 2015
Just wasn't fun. The movement didn't make a lot of sense. May 9, 2008
