BETA PHOTO: Beginning of the first pitch of Zombieland.


1st pitch. Climb the left facing crack system until it goes right. Continue straight up the face passing a horizontal cam placement and on to a good # 2 where the flake nears the face climbing again. Above this a bolt protects the crux and the moves to the anchor. 85'
2nd pitch climbs shallow left facing corner right above the anchor. Move left around roof at the top. 60'
Shares the anchor with Double Tap and Chalking Dead.


Starts on left facing crack right of Roll them Bones. Make 2 raps, double rope rappel or walk off from top.


Single rack to #2. Alpine draws.

Fun climb. Glad it isn't bolted. First pitch goes at about 5.6, second pitch at 5.7 with the crux about halfway when the hands get a little odd and feet get thin. Could probably be comfortably led with a single rack and some nuts.

Despite how dirty the crack was when I did the route (spring 2014) this is a great route for beginning trad leaders. Pro is easy to place and available virtually the entire way up the route. I wouldn't say this is a very memorable climb but a good alternative on those busy days at the slips, if you have the gear.

Eats pro, definitely single rack of cams and nuts will suffice. Off the second pitch you've got the option of doing a fun 5.9 slab with an engaging roof or continuing up this route for the second pitch.
