Lower Main Wall/East Buttress Trails Re-opened Details

Description

This is a fun crack climb with an interesting start, good position, and exposure. It is high on the main wall. From the ledge at the top of Zig Zag, a tree extends horizontally off the ledge to the east. This is the springboard. Walk out the tree as far as possible to the point where it contacts a steep face. A couple face climbing moves to the right off of the tree gain a good crack with a fixed pin. The face climbing moves can be protected with a small nut. Once in the crack, follow it all the way to the top with some interesting and balancy moves. There is a bolted anchor at the top.

Location

The route starts by walking the horizontal tree on the top ledge of Zig Zag.

Protection

Gear to 2" and a fixed pin

Fun way to the top after Zig Zag, did almost pull out a block about the size of a peanut butter jar when I was about parallel to the first bolt of the route to the climbers left of Springboard, don't think the block is needed but did certainly add a little spice early on. Jul 23, 2017

Oh no, Oretro, sorry to hear that -

I hope you could catch the bat. Otherwise, I imagine that there is concern about rabies?

Bats are fairly common in cracks. About 30 years back, on the FA of Earwax at Index, Terry was startled by bats coming out from around his jams. Luckily though he wasn't bit. Sep 28, 2015

I was bit by a bat 2/3 of the way up this route today. Sep 28, 2015

One of my favorites. There is no better place to learn to climb. Mar 4, 2010
