Kris Klein on Route 66

Description 

This route climbs the the right flake/corner system on the wall with zulu warrior and voodoo child. This route could be very good if it saw more traffic, but with the two classic routes to the left, it seems unlikely enough people will climb it.

From the ground climb short slab into a vegetated corner, climb out onto a crack/ledge and traverse upwards until you are under a flake. This HUGE flake sounds like a drum when you play it. place smallish gear, and give it a nice firm pull and watch the flake expand, hence the PG 13. Sack up and climb through under clings on good feet until you get better gear, follow the cracks and slab until the corner is too dirty to climb, top out and walk to the anchor on zulu warrior and voodoo child.

Location 

Third climb to the right on zulu wall proper. This route climbs the right side crack system, it begins on the slab to the right, and climbs into a corner on the left before heading out right, then back left to follow the crack system.

Protection 

gear to 2 or 3 inches, runners. 2 bolt anchor.
