Description:

A short route for Zen Wall, right next to one of the access points. But this is an excellent sustained route at 5.10a on really sound varnish. Fun slab and edges through five bolts (not six as stated in Todd's guide book) to anchor. Worth scrambling up from the lower trail and doing. (photos)

4 out of 5 stars Simple but fun

Nothing too special about this climb in my opinion; fun pockets and rails to work with but all in all a pretty straight forward climb.

The belay station leaves something to be desired, but if it's being top roped you can sit on the opposite ledge facing the climb and it is pretty comfortable!
