Description 

The only spoiler on this one is the poor anchor position. Bring some long slings to get the rope past the sharp edge. Crux at the roof. Rebolted with SS glue-ins June 2016. Intermediate anchor added (with permission from first ascensionist, Steve Teufert) just past the roof to add a nice moderate (5.8ish) option for beginning climbers.

Also the name of a classic line on the Lower Malemute in Squamish.

@ John: Nice! I think that Steve named a lot of routes after Zappa tracks back in the day (thus San Ber'dino, etc).

Ah yes, I had forgotten the source.

Reminds me that we have a Zappa Wall at Index, just now starting to get new routes after our first forays there in the early '80s.
