Climber on Zah Dude, Chatiemac Cliff.


This route is absolutely amazing. It has solid rock, great moves, and is located on a dramatic wall that overhangs 15'. There's a pleasant, open, flat cliff base too, that sits high in the forest canopy, and stays dry in the rain.

Go up the corner and right-leaning seam to a good horizontal. Rest up, then make a couple hard layback moves up an orange, left-facing edge. At its top, move right to an orange, left-facing flake, then go straight up a seam which widens to tips, then fingers, then jugs at the fixed anchor.

The technical crux is the move right, and the redpoint crux is the endurance in the overhanging tips crack above.


On the Main Face, about 30' from the left end, at a shallow right-facing, right-leaning corner.


7 bolts, 2-bolt anchor.
