A few gigantic holds gets you onto a shelf where the fun begins. The shelf yields some interesting handholds in not-so-obvious places. There is no real crux, but the move off the shelf back onto the face will be a little thrilling for new 5.7 leaders. As you move higher, the grade remains sustained and challenging on classic Cochise granite.


Seventh route from the left on Zappa Dome. Two routes to the left of the obvious black streak on Burnt Weenie Sandwich.


9 bolts. One hanger and one chain for anchors.

The 6th bolt (I think) may be hidden behind a bulge/chicken head depending on the exact route you choose. This climb is not run out, so if it looks like a long way to the next clip you might not be seeing that bolt.
