Description

Zonked Out was the first 5.12 in New Hampshire and it remains one of the best 5.12 trad leads. It's the thin crack to the left of the classic Screaming Yellow Zonkers.

Zonked Out is a study in technical laybacking and thin jamming. The moves are engaging, and the pro is pretty good.

Protection

It's fairly well protected with thin gear.

5.10ish climbing up to a tricky V4ish crux. I fell & pulled out a cam on this route yesterday when the rock busted out around it. It was no big deal but just something to keep in mind.....not every placement is bomber.
Soooo fun though....can't wait to get back on it. Oct 26, 2014

lol, ++. This one might be easier if you are not as tall and have smaller fingers. OK, 12a then, but not b. I was comparing it to Zonkers and Greenpeace. I flashed it, but it did seem harder when I went for a second lap and barely made it. Jun 30, 2011

Maybe 2-1/2 stars, but the history fills out the third. The crux is thin and barndoory. Sequence is important and smaller fingers may help. Jun 27, 2011
