Description

Climb a slightly wandering line on gray limestone that turns to beautiful, textured orange rock at the top. Z Man is mostly moderate climbing with one hard pull at 2/3 height. There are a lot of good holds on this route, but it is sometimes hard to find them. Look for the chalk, move your feet, feel around, and you should find them.

Z Man was named for my new son Zeke, born a few days before I cleaned and bolted this line in a flurry of energy.

Location

On the right side of the Nappy Dugout, this is two routes to the left of Ivory Tower but starting below the starting ledge for Ivory Tower, PMS, etc. at a new base area with this new route and Mr. Cranky Pants, which is the next route to the right.

Protection

10 bolts and anchor.

Still pretty dirty and dusty, but it should clean up into a nice line. Aug 13, 2011

When in doubt, move LEFT! Tenuous down low. As much a mental workout as a physical one. Take 11 draws (+ anchors), though the guidebook says 10 bolts. Aug 16, 2016
