Begins in a rather ominous looking chimney with many stacked flakes. Good "full-body" climbing skills and prudent gear section lead to a deceptively pumpy and powerful sequence through the small roof. An excellent warmup for the real reason you came to the Zonkers wall just a few feet to the right!


Just around the corner from Firebird, to the left of Ace of Spades. Look for the chimney start.


Pretty good, normal rack. Some loose flakes in the lower section, most of it is pretty solid but don't be stupid.

Lots of hollow flakes on this one made for a spooky lead. Next time I will TR this after leading Ace of spades (better moves, better gear).
