Watch Out For Them Zombies! There In The Hole.

This is the Full Monty Exposure Experience. What a stellar line! This is among the fullest, scariest and airiest single pitches at Moores Wall. It's hard not to give this one 4 stars.

Climb 'Into The Wild' until you gain the prow's arete. Instead of following the arete to the top, continue up and right over a flat roof and into a slightly overhung dihedral/crack seam. This will lead straight into the huge roof finish of Zombie Woof. Either climb into the hole or around it on exposed juggy terrain.

Standard Rack with multiple 1/2" and 3/4" cams. Bring plenty of 24" runners and at least a couple 48's.

Tim and I started this route about 12 years ago, but I don't think we finished it that first day. I believe Tim came back and finished it with another partner a few months later. We first did the lower, tricky traverse before giving this a shot.

In the two years since these routes went up, I've seen Tim several times and he has not mentioned it. Greg Loomis spoke openly about taking this line up the prow for over a year before giving us permission to do so because Tim had suggested the angle might be too low for his interests.

I'm not sure I follow your logic. Why would you expect Tim to follow all the MP submissions or talk about a route done over 12 years ago when you talked to him recently? Tim has 12 comments posted to MP total, and his last one relating to a route was in 2012 and was for one of his own routes. I don't think he scours MP for new route information. I don't have any skin in the game on this route. As I mentioned, we gave it a quick look on lead, and I wasn't involved with any subsequent attempts. Just letting you know it has likely been done, and who you can ask for accurate FA details.

I was simply saying that I was unaware of anything and since he talked to Greg about doing it, he must not have gotten around to it himself.
