BETA PHOTO: 'Dr. Zyme' The obvious slanting crack in the cente...


A fun route that makes you think with a great finish.

Make a couple tricky and balancy moves off the ground, stemming and using face holds and the finger seam to an insecure crack with marginal pro. Continue up and left with good pro into the short but great hand crack to the anchors.

I agree, tricky start...actually I took my first ground fall on this bitch when I blew a small wire 4 ft off the ground and landed on my ass! Thanks for posting Adam!

Good gear in the first 10 feet, then it runs out just as the balancy crux hits. This climb would get way more traffic and be way more enjoyable with the addition of just one bolt at the 15-foot level (where the gear runs out at the crux).

I backed off because of ground-fall potential.
