BETA PHOTO: Zombie Corners


Climbs the face bolt to bolt occasionally using the arête down low. Thin hands and feet through the roof to jugs on the face above.


Starts directly above rightmost anchor on the ledge. Done most easily by starting on Zombieland though any of the lower routes get you to the ledge.
2 raps or 1double rope rappel down Zombieland. Can walk off.


6 draws to 2 bolt anchor.

It may be a good idea to top rope these routes from the top anchor. There can be some drag on a semi sharp edge. Plus it's a great way to get some seclusion when the slips get crowded. Because these routes are new there is potential for breakage of some hold especially around the roofs and loose rocks on the belay ledges. THere is not a lot of helmet wearing that happens at the slips so be extra careful. Good addition to great moderate area.

Climb "roll the bones" to chains, belay second up to ledge, then go right to another set of chains. We used this station to belay. Was able to rap down to ground BARELY with a 70 from top of this climb, although we landed in some brush. Recommend tying knots in ends if you rap from top, but can be done. Really fun climb. Crux is the small roof.

Zombie land to double tap and then rap down to climb chalking dead is an awesome way to spend an afternoon! Dynamic moves, great protection easy to access. Fine work boys!!

Good rock, well protected. The smooth slab by bolt 2 was the crux for me. It's fun working out the roof move.
