Description

This is a link-up of shorts, it doesnt have many independent moves but I thought it deserved its own route listing because it climbs different then the two routes it shares moves with.

Start as for Zig-Zag Crack (V1) and move up until the obvious triangle jug, once here move left with the seam into the top of Metallic (V7). The route meets up with Metallic (V7) post crux, in a short dihedral. Then top out, there is a good hold for the top out, it just isn't obvious from the dihedral.

The route could use a little cleaning on the top but the crux is very clean. The crux is the transfer between the two routes which can either be done with a long span move or using small crimps.

I dont know if this has been done before, I figure someone has done it at some point because it seems to be an obvious variation, so if anyone has a name or FA credit let me know.

Location

The routes is on the Zig Zag boulder, start as for Zig Zag Crack (V1) the break left into the top of Metallic (V7). The walkoff is obvious.

Protection

A couple of pads and a spotter.

There is a bolt on top if the height bothers you.
