Description

In keeping with the area, Zelda is another short, boulder-problem style route on amazing stone (though "Pong" may be a more appropriate name considering the way the route zigzags up the wall). The rock is utterly featureless--except where there are features--making the climbing quite sequential and aesthetic. Due to the large, easily accessible boulder behind the route, this would seem a good choice for the on sight climber.

Stem over from the boulder at the heavily chalked xenolith, then head easily up the shallow left-facing corner. Clip the 2nd bolt, then head straight left via pockets to a big flat edge. Some fancy footwork and a huge reach will get you to the small roof. Check your knot, hike up your feet, and huck for all you're worth to the obvious hold. Pumpy climbing continues straight left along the lip, to a final boulder problem just below the anchor.

Location

Behind the Super Mario Boulder, on a steep, East-facing wall. Begin up "Tubin Dudes", but break left after the 2nd bolt. This shared start is immediately left of "Leap of Faith".

Protection

~6 bolts to 2 Springer Anchors.

Be sure to arrange for a heads-up belay on this one.
