This is a great long route that puts a bit of hurt on you through a small roof and up wide hands/fists. Be careful on the lower section. Your belayer may want to plug something into the Chinle as you are perched on a bit of a knoll.


This is climber's right of The Curve and across the drainage approximately 250 feet. Start at the top of the opposite drainage and traverse some Chinle to begin the crack.


Bring a yellow Metolius, some other fingers at the bottom, doubles from #0.75 to #3, maybe triples of #3, and 1 or 2 #4s.

Yeah, Zombie Woof is what I know this as also. 5.10+. Feb 20, 2015
Greetings. The name of this route is Zombie Woof given to it on the first ascent by myself and others sometime in the mid to late '80s. I'm not quite sure who was there. Dave Henritze was there along with Jim Olsen and an assortment of other folks. It was also the weekend that Chuck Grosman was married. I have a vague memory that I hung just after the roof. It saddens me to see that someone thought the route needed an anchor at the end of the crack. The original anchor is in the most logical place, a ledge. However, todays climbers just can't seem to make that jump to placing anchors from ledges, when available. The placement of the anchor on the ledge camouflaged the anchor to some degree, which in today's atmosphere of increased scrutiny from private land owners and BLM/Forest Service managers is desirable.
