Description

Start at the base of a flake and follow it up to the slab and the first bolt. Follow the right-hand line of bolts from there to the top. Don't be intimidated by the bulge at the end, the route goes just fine either direct, to the left, or to the right. Remember to stem.

Location

Find the left end of the Zulu Wall where there is a large slab with a pair of black streaks running down it and a lot of funky vein-like ridges. Zulu Warrior is the right-hand line of bolts up this slab. Start on the flake directly below the bolt line.

Protection

5 bolts.

Awesome route! Feels a bit more runout than Voodoo Child. Smearing, stemming and pinching skills required. Jun 28, 2016

Not really a sport climb, but a ground-up traditionally bolted route. A fall before achieving the third bolt will leave you in bad shape.. You're about 10' out on 5.9 ground with the low-angle slab below haunting you... I'll give this one the dreaded "R" rating. Felt a tad harder than it's neighbor to the left. Jul 1, 2013

one (if not the) best route in the valley. Awesome stemming and smearing. A little runout for a sport climb, but otherwise, flawless. Jun 27, 2011
