Description 

This small area has a dense collection of routes including the mega-classic namesake route Screaming Yellow Zonkers. SYZ alone should inspire a visit to this section of woodchuck ledge.

Getting There 

Follow the main Woodchuck ledge approach trail until you reach the stunning dead-vertical section of the caterpillar wall. To your left is a short, dirty, and loose gully. Ascend this gully to the base of the Zonkers wall, which will be obvious based on the stunning SYZ crack on display in the middle of the face.

Screaming Yellow Zonkers Crack 5.11c 6c+ 24 VIII- 24 E4 6a  New Hampshire : WM: Kancamagus (Eastern) : ... : The Zonkers Wall
This is one of the best pitches in the northeast! Don't follow the crowds. Come climb this materpiece! Spectacular overhanging finger crack climbing to pumpy and technical crux. Jaw dropping!Some history from the Ed Webster guidebook: "Joe Cote and Bruce Kumph aided the first ascent of the route on June 15, 1975. The first free ascent was a significant climb of the times when it was done by Jim Dunn in October of 1975." Trust me, onsighting this crack is gonna feel significant in 2024....[more]   Browse More Classics in New Hampshire
