Zombie Woof Rock is closed to climbing. Details
Zombie Woof Rock is now closed to climbing due to native rock art in the vicinity. The NPS has signs alerting climbers to the closure both at the rock and on the approach trail.
DescriptionA good route if you like 'blue collar' climbing, and a nearly mean-spirited sandbag at it's formerly given grade of 5.10b. In the spirit of fairly warning people of sandbags by changing the upgrading to 5.10d (we all know 10d is harder than 11a, right?), the newer book has reduced the odds of a suprise on this route.
Climb up an unprotected slab (easy) into an unprotected right-facing corner (moderate, but watch for loose rock) and up under the roof. Get a few placements of protection under the roof and start negotiating outward and upward. Solve a scrunch problem, place another cam, then get horozontal on some wide-hands jams and out to the lip of the roof to a great chock-stone grip and 'rest' on steep ground where protection comes easy again. Fight the pump and continue up to the topout on good holds but steep terrain to reach the top out.
LocationThis is the left-most route on Zombie Woof Wall's East face. It goes up the right-facing corner to a window to the west, then out under the left-most crack through the roof to a horizontal break, and then up to to the top.
