Description 

This climb is easiest to find with the aid of the photo in the Vogel climbing guide. However, it can be found with a text description.

Approach the north face of the Zebra Cliffs from the end of Jumbo Rocks camping area. This is the nearest end and you will turn right (west) well below the face. Watch for a set of two square buttresses that stand out from the generally rounded features.

There is a left-facing dihedral formed between the upper left and lower right formations, this is Frozen Fish Fingers.

Scramble up to the base on lead and place a piece or two in the corner (Frozen Fish Fingers) and then step left to climb some edges and proceed upwards to the bottom of a crack (thin fingers) which widens to hands before topping out.

Although this is described as a handcrack, it is mostly fingers and small protection, to match. The belay up top requires some larger gear though.

To descend, walk back and west into a gully with some scrambling/chimney moves required.

Protection 

Finger to hand sized nuts and cams.If you do not toss a piece into Frozen Fish Fingers before starting, you will be dangerously runout at the crux.
