High on the Vector Madness Wall is an overhanging prow with two short but outrageous bolted lines well worth the walk for BCC aficionados dabbling in the low end of 5.12. Zach's Theorem is the left line, taking the biggest set of overhangs on Vector Madness Wall -- some of the best air in the Storm Mountain area (hence, IMO, three stars although short). It starts off a large ledge (with two Metolius rap anchors) down and right of the overhang. George thinks this is 12a, but its boulder-problem crux has continuously kicked my butt and his rating would drop the 12a grade on Doubling the Cube, which I pinned my ego to last year, so I'm compelled to give ZT a harder grade. Time will tell whether the table is set for yet another piece of humble pie.
Approach by climbing the first part of Lack of Principle until able to traverse right and up to the ledge, or by climbing the first pitch of Pi in the Sky and walking left on the ledge -- both are 5.6-5.7, but Pi may be more aesthetic.
6 draws to get to the chains, which had a fixed locker as of this writing.
