Another blank looking cripy crux leading to better holds... This one isn't quite as stiff as Edgehog 5.10d but isnt as interesting either...

Climb the blank looking slab over some super tiny holds to better holds and easier climbing... The only challenge other than the slab is a pull over a short roof that isn't too diufficult at all compaired to the start... after the roof cruise to the top, aint nothing stoppin you...

The only negative thing about this route was that it seemed dirty, more so than the others in the area...


The First route left of the fixed rope in the short gully that leads to Armadillo 5.10d and Put me in the Zoo 5.9+... Walk the trail past the fixed rope and look to your right...


bolts (#?) to anchor...

Crux felt pretty stout for the grade, but the rest of the climbing is 5.9/10a.

Maybe not as stiff as edgehogs (I didn't do it), but felt waaay harder than Armadillo to me. And of course it doesn't even compare to the other routes at the cliff seeing as they are apples and bananas in styles (funny how that works)
