A fun linkup of 3 boulders. Start sitting as for Another World, follow edges left, swing feet onto the arete and transition over onto the arete next to When I'm on My Own, then handtraverse the lip to the left to get your feet on the starting hold of Jaws (Texas Chainsaw Massacre), now downclimb Jaws with a reverse mantle (crux), traverse left into the start of Hobbit Hole, and follow the Hobbit Hole crack to the end.

Long and pumpy.


Traverses the whole left side of the Zoo Boulders.

Is it possible without traversing the lip of the professor?

As in stay low across the boulder and climb through Professor into the top of Jaws? I remember joking about it, but I've never tried it. It wouldn't be easy.

Kind of silly but relatively worthwhile.
