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


This enjoyable two pitch route follows slabs and crack systems up right side of the main wall. Ray Auld Memorial is good compliment to Zig Zag in its length and quality, especially when combined with the approach pitch, Sunshine on a Dark Day.

Although the route technically starts from the top of Snag Buttress, the best approach is by climbing Sunshine on a Dark Day - the 5.7 crack on the right side of Snag Buttress. Adding this pitch makes the route *** in my book. From the top of snag buttress, follow a left slanting crack starting 10 feet right of a black water streak (Freedom Fighter). Move right on ledge to shared anchors with Freedom Fighter. From here continue up the slab to the right of Freedom passing the bolts for of Cat's Away on your right, and continuing up a crack system to the top. Traverse left to shared anchor with Freedom.
Three single raps gets you down to the ground.


The route begins at the top of snag buttress. Climbing Sunshine on a Dark Day is the best and most direct way to get here.
