Description 

Another route for the folks who prefer edges and ledges to pockets, but still a route requiring strength. Long lock-offs are the key to the climb and shorter climbers might find it more difficult, perhaps the reason for its early 5.11a rating.

Location 

This is the second route from the right at The Zoo. Like its neighbor to the right, "Put Me In The Zoo (9+)", you pass below it and come back up and right to a ledge at its base.

Protection 

6 bolts to a bolted anchor.

Skip the 5.9 to the right and do this instead.

If you're short, you might want to stick clip the first 2 bolts.
