CW on the opening slab.
Start either via the iced slab direct or shallow left-leaning corner/crack to its right. A few bits of gear might make the right-hand start worth it, then move left and climb through a series of steep drips to the top.
Geoff and I had a hard time believing this had never been climbed, but a combo of temperature swings and rain in late December 2016 were apparently enough to bring it in for maybe the first time while Zippos remained unprotectable. If you think it's not new be sure to let me know!
The apparently super-rare flow immediately to the right of Zippos. Climb to the top and rap from the juniper tree above the climb.
Rock gear and screws.

I used to bullseye womp rats in my T-16 back home.

Neat Paul! Do you remember folks leading or just top-roping it? Was there a name anybody used for it at the time?
