Climb up past a big flake and into a small seam, layback, smear and balance through the seam, then edge and pebble pinch your way to the top. I didn't find a discernible crux, it felt pretty sustained the whole way. The funky seam thing kept it interesting for sure. Sorry, I have no pics, I hate when people don't post pics.


This is the bolted line to the left of the final pitch of Zipper.


I did not lead this, we set up a top rope from the anchors off the boulder just above the route. Bring a few quickdraws, and it looked like it would take a few small cams in the seam. Half of the bolts are buttonheads, the upper half are newer bolts. It looks like it would be a bit spicy to lead but safe as it is pretty steep.
