Description

Climb the large weakness to the top. The weakness a.k.a. line of least resistance doesn't go straight up so look around to find the easiest line. This line zig-zags from large ledge to large ledge hence the name. This can also be used as a down climb, but not my recommended way down.

Location

Just right of the tree growing on the ledge at head height, on the road side face on the Barn Door Boulder.

Protection

a weakness is the path of least resistance... on one face you might have a 5.6 and a 5.12 pretty close to each other... the 5.6 would be the weakness... Dec 20, 2008

I always thought that term referred to an actual weakness in the rock (e.g. a section of blocky/broken rock, a crack, or some other feature). Dec 22, 2008

I have heard it used both ways in this case Lee is correct by saying the path of least resistance. Dec 23, 2008

yeah i think both can apply but normally in guidebooks i think mine is more common... however, very often they are one in the same where the crack is the weakness in the rock and the path of least resistance... cheers Dec 23, 2008
