Zig Zag is a short, fun hand crack that climbs a face to the right of a dihedral high on the dome. A little scrambling is required to reach the start of the climb. Look for a dihedral formed by a boulder leaning up against the dome. Scramble up the face until you reach a good ledge just below the crack (easy 4th class). The crack starts off as a hand crack, and then narrows slightly at the top. Near the top of the wall, the crack starts to break to the right (awkward moves) and then heads to a ledge. The crux is pulling up onto the ledge. There is no anchor above the route, so be prepared to rig one, or save this climb for last an walk off the other side of the dome.


Standard rack up to a #2 Friend or #1 Camalot. Bring a couple larger cams if you want to build and anchor at the top.
