A west-side area of 17 routes at the southern end of the Inner Gorge, DMZ is among the cliffs with the fewest stars/route avg. in the ORG.
Good place to warm-up for harder material nearby -- hence the name? Faces SE -- so esp. suitable on cold mornings.
Central Gorge Gully approach. Walk north for ten minutes or so. DMZ is on the west side of the river, across from the Staying Powers Towers.

Holocaust is a wicked good Gorge slab climb. Great moves and really sustained through the 5th bolt then eases off just a wee bit and the bolts get a little farther apart. Finish up big jugs on the steep head wall....[more] Browse More Classics in CA
