Description

The Z Crack is a nice, two pitch moderate with great gear in a beautiful location.

Pitch 1: it climbs up a steep crack with good gear through an overlap and then traverses 12' to the right on a large handrail. Establish yourself underneath the large roof, and traverse under it to the left side. It is pretty obvious from here. Follow the crack and protection almost straight left for 30' until you notice a nice hand crack directly above you. Climb up to the hand crack, and follow it to its end. The anchor is out right.

Pitch 2: climb straight up from the anchor following a thin seam/slab. Look for the best rock with protection that leads you to a ledge at the base of a nice looking corner. Climb the corner with a nice crack up to the anchor. The Major Wall is directly above you at this point. It is super fun to climb these pitches up to the major wall and then climb the nice corner system of the Major Wall...if you are wanting a multi-pitch day.

Location

Locate the start in the center of the wall. It usually has a few plants growing in the first few moves.

Protection

A double set of cams and some stoppers is more than enough. Include a few microcams.
