Lower Main Wall/East Buttress Trails Re-opened MORE INFO >>>

Description 

This route climbs the face directly to the right of the Zig zag corner, between Zig Zag and Frogs in space. Very enjoyable continuous movement, mostly on good positive but small face holds. The route sustains an angle that is slightly less than vertical, which means that you can use the occasional good feet for decent rests.

Location 

The bolt line sandwiched between Zig Zag and Frogs in Space.

Protection 

Bolts (~6 + anchors).

Shares an anchor with Frogs in Space, so you can TR it from that anchor. The anchor can also be reached by climbing ZigZag past ZZ's P1 anchor and traversing up and right on the easy (but unprotectable) slab.

As of 12/7/14 the third bolt is currently missing its hanger. There is a small undercling right by that bolt that may take a C3 cam (I don't know for sure, I was TR'ing). This may or may not be why somebody stripped the bolt hanger. Would be nice to get a hanger back on it, as the rest of the route is on bolts, and it seems silly to require gear for that one placement. It's listed in the guidebook as a sport route.
