The Climbing

This great corner throws all sort of BCC style your way. Juggy roofs, splitter cracks, and tricky gear--all in 60 ft!

The corner is the right-most of the two prominent corners located off the ledge above and to the right of Roll the Bones, with the other one being Zombieland's second pitch. It shares anchors at the top and bottom with Double Tap.

Climb up with sparse gear for 10 feet. As the climbing gets harder the gear gets better. Keep moving up past jugs and around a roof to the point where the crack ends. Clip the bolt and face climb on jugs to gain a splitter widening finger crack, which takes you around a roof. Keep moving through hidden finger pods to more jugs and the top of the climb.

How to Find It

This route takes off from the ledge that runs from the top of Italian ArĂȘte to Zombieland. Climb any of the routes between these to gain the ledge, with Zombieland being the most direct. Belay from either of the right-most sets of anchor bolts and head over to the corner! Chalking Dead can be toproped after leading pitch 2 of Zombieland or Double Tap, as all three share anchors.

To Descend: There are bolts with rap chains on top. Either do a double-rope rap to the ground or two single rope raps utilizing the anchors on top of pitch 1 of Zombieland. Alternatively, you can walk off after topping out by heading north and following the trail across the formation. You can get back down to the base using the trail through the scree field gully or you can take the trail back up to Storm Mountain if you parked there.

Gear

Mostly fingers to hand size pieces and one bolt. A double rack from #0.3 to #1 Camalot and a draw for the bolt will be fine. Stoppers are useful in several places. There are anchor bolts and rap chains at the top.

A huge thank you to Carl for his massive cleaning job!
