Description:

Pretty damn spicy route in between ZM and the Zodiac. Lots of nailing but most parties don't place many heads on their ascents. Not as chossy as it looks from the meadow, but loose sections provide crux sections of the route. While you won't find any true PDH sections, there are plenty of DFU bits! After padding your way through the nasty places, you'll be amazed when you hit the A1 of Zodiac just below Peanut Ledge - it'll feel like you just drove off the 4x4 track onto the Interstate!
