Standing on nubbins is easy. It's moving from one...


After 10 feet up Zipper, head out left from the flake. After about 8 or ten feet (3 or 4 steps) head straight up. There is also a direct start which is 5.12.


This is about 8 feet left of Zipper.


TR anchors on top. You can lead this, place a cam in the Zipper flake before heading out left, also you can place a blue nut in the corner of Zipper where it zigs out left.

This line (not really a variation at all) was lead on-sight by Herb, who stretched out right as far as he could (while balancing on the non-existent smears) to stuff gear into the Zipper flake as he went up.

So does this line go up the black streak visible in the picture? I have had trouble finding it before, but if it was led by by reaching right in to the Zipper, then it doesn't seem near as far over as I thought it was.

Jim, no it does not go all the way to the black streak. It follows up the slab about 6 feet parallel and left of the Zipper. Look for a tiny peanut about 10 feet off the ground, and then pretty much go straight up.
