Comments: Zebra Walk, 5.8.

FWIW, I also climbed the crack just left of him and found pitons near the top, 2 directly below the anchors he's on. Maybe not worth the rack as you have to ignore how close you are to the bolts.

Comments: Maybe 4 or 5 holds fell off today, and the big block you traverse out on isn't that solid either.

I don't think this variation will be around very long.

Comments: Maybe a bomb rating is tough, but the edge of the crack is quite loose, and it seemed like a 3-4 foot section is about to fall off. I was able to solo up the slab without touching the choss, which wasn't bad. I guess then I'd suggest skipping the big stuff and toproping from the anchors on either side.

Comments: 1. Some chains have been added that reach over the edge.

2. nice climbing between this route and Salt Mother; pockets to a crack.

Comments: Their name. This was put up long before the internet, but now it's here in the database and the history can be filled in where credit is due.

Comments: EDIT: I listed all 3 routes in the database, with the FA's blessing.
They all start about 40 feet left of Pussy and Unknown, before you get to the usual Catslab routes.

Thanks, Kevin.

Comments: Not on Moss Island, on the other side of the river, between River Road and Rt 5, North of the tracks. Looking at a map, this was north of the Sewage Treatment Plant and the Recycling Center. We always bushwacked/traversed in from the West. Water marks on the wall showed that long narrow pond had sometimes flooded the base of some routes, though I don't ever recall that. (40 yrs ago)

Comments: I wussed out on lead and aided a couple of the last moves. Jerry followed cleanly and
called it Random Walks in the S-Plane. (Engineers...)

Comments: It was known as The Cross in the 70's. We'd heard it had been climbed, which I'm sure, but we didn't find any evidence when we did it, all clean, pre-Friends. Heady stuff for young climbers.

Comments: I think it's under or next to Rumple Teaser, about 4-6' off the ground.

It's a terrible spot for a slackline in the middle of a busy climbing area, and corresponding spot across the creek seems too far away, IMO.

Comments: This leader clipped the first 2 bolts of Trick or Treat then traversed back on route. Dan's Line has its own line of bolts down low.

Comments: I didn't have Bob's brilliant topo when I went, so I drew all these sections with complex topos, counted bolts, measured pitches and later figured out which climbs were which when I got home. (Duh!) I doubt it helps much, but it would have organized me quite a bit figuring out which routes were what when I was there. I used it to make some photo topos that I posted of the routes I did. If this takes out the mystery, I'll delete it

Comments: IMHO, I'd call this area the 2nd wall you see, (Panel III, L-R) between Central Crack and the Flake Route.
(The very first thing you see when you drive in I'd call Panel IV, with the 3 rising traverse cracks.)

Comments: From the top of P1, you can do a very reasonable 2nd trad pitch, up left to the Zebra anchors, 5.6.

I placed BD 4, 5 & 6 Stoppers and #0.4 & 1 Camalots (YMMV). With effort, I may have placed more small stuff. The angle is less than vertical, and the holds are excellent.

Don't they know that retrobolting isn't cool?

Comments: Someone retrobolted this bit and put an anchor where you'd expect one so you won't have to risk this.

Comments: Someone has recently (2016) added bolts and an anchor, so that last bolt and this rising traverse are no longer necessary.
