2017 Seasonal Raptor Closure: UTW from waterfall to Golden Arch MORE INFO >>>

Description 

Start up knobs and moving left into a mantle past the first bolt. Continue into a thin crack and another mantle to a ledge. Make some catwalk moves out left into a corner. Alternatively, one could finish the crack direct and end at The Shrew/Ze Squid Anchors.

Location 

Access via The Cricket or The Claw, just left of The Shrew. All routes in this area can be top roped via scrambling up and right of the snake.

Protection 

Bring doubles to .5 including a handful of brass offsets and an optional red and blue ball nut. You could also replace one set of cams with offset cams.

Excellent route! It's challenging, but not too hard, the gear is exciting and small, and the feature that you climb is unique and memorable. Highly recommended.

Wow, cant say enough about how fun this lead is! Never too difficult, but sustained and tricky climbing the whole way. On thin gear to top it off! I will be repeating this one again often. We did cricket to get to it, and belayed at the chains. This area could use a topo to clarify all the different ways.

I've been calling this zone "the zoo" because you can link up so many different routes together! Example: cricket into the snake (aka the snicket); cricket into ze squid (aka ze cricket); claw into the shrew (aka the clew. Or the shraw. Whatever). Basically 5 short to avenge height climbs all converge at the cricket anchors! Classic index Shena igans

Haha, I've been calling it the animal kingdom.
