Zombie Flanders


Warning: Must like small and relatively sharp holds to climb anywhere on the west face of the Goosehead. The crux may be the dynamic start if you are short otherwise maybe a longish move between quartz bands. Fun moves, but not a great climb to lap unless you really like pain.


First route to the right of Scrambled Egg on the West face proper.


4 bolts plus chain anchors.

First round; first minute. This climb is relentless crimps from the dyno start until the forth bolt. To overcome I precisely mapped where to place my index fingers on multiple holds. Zombie Flanders is painful, short, and unforgiving yet kind-of awesome in a sadistic sense.

This line felt significantly harder than neighboring routes of the same grade such as Knights of the Wrong Tissue, Gneiss Boys, and Squeezing The Lemmon.

This one packs it in to be sure. IMO, this is the quintessential Mt. Lemmon "Your fingers will hate you for this" route.

Comparing this to the routes on Knights Wall is a stretch I think. It is shorter than the gym walls. I personally think Knights of the Wrong Tissue is harder. John, I think you rated Knights 11d. I think its harder than Holey Moley, Time the Avenger, and several other 12a climbs in the area.
