Description Suggest change

There are 2 options to start this pitch:

1. (5.9) From the chains at the top of the first pitch on Zig Zag, climb the slab directly up past 2 bolts until underneath the overhang (these bolts are also shared with Cat from Outer Space which goes up the arete to the left).

2. (5.7) The overhang can also be reached by climbing discontinuous cracks and ramps on the slab which head up and right from the start.

Once at the overhang, climb rightward underneath it until rejoining the upper pitch of Zig Zag. Gear is available the whole way, and there are several fun moves. The route ends on the same ledge as Zig Zag, with a bolted anchor. Rope drag can be an issue on this pitch, bring along some extendable runners.

Location Suggest change

Climb the first pitch of Zig Zag to reach the start. One can also scramble around to the left of the first pitch of Zig Zag to attain some grassy benches, but this may require some low 5th class moves.
