A route with an...interesting, but well protected crux that sits just to the right of the Zip.

Climb the crack to a ledge, then climb the dihedral on the left to a roof and follow the crack to the top.


The crack system just right of the zip.


thin gear to 3"

Funny, I thought this was way, way, way, WAY harder than The Zip, at least the first part, the thin crack. The ramp and up is easier. Sep 10, 2016

This was an on-sight lead for me, and the Zip was not, still think this is easier then the Zip. Feb 12, 2016

Fiddly gear, but not PG-13. Sep 4, 2012
The crux comes early, protects well, and is only a small step up from the hardest moves on the zip. I suppose the PG13 rating is for the unprotected easy ramp in the middle, nothing to worry about, it's essentially an elevated sidewalk. After that, it's pretty fun jamming and stemming to the top, the roof is fun and has a great exposed feeling to it for a smaller crag. Overall an okay route, don't go out of your way, but worth checking out if you're at the Zip anyways. Oct 31, 2011

This routes anchors need attention- a wrench could fix the shackles easily, but new bolts would be good as well. Jul 30, 2010
