A good route by it's own merit, but popular mostly as a warm up for the rest of the lines at The Zoo.
The route is on small holds on a near vertical wall, but only has a few moves at the grade down low.


This is the right-most route at The Zoo, and is in keeping with the general trend of being easier to harder from right to left. This is the first bolted line encountered as you come into the amphitheatre, but you pass below it and come back up and right to a ledge at its base.


7 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor.

tiny holds in between big cracks on this slab, but the best part about this route is the picture opportunities if your buddy clambers up the bulge to the right!

This route is low angle, wouldn't really call it near vertical. If you're used to climbing the steep juggy routes in Muir Valley, or indoor climbing, the tiny holds on this route might freak you out a little bit and make it feel more like 10a. But once you get your head in the game and trust your feet, it will be very fun, and "Chimp" to the left of it will not feel harder.
Tne start is quite thin, a stick clip will help.
