Description:

Start on the infamous half dead cedar tree laying horizontally. Walk out about as far as you dare, and start up the face. An old rusted piton is in the crack above and right, shortly after to get on the face. Continue straight up, working slightly left to the anchor. Holds are steep, exposure interesting and pro protecting the move onto the face is a little tricky and somewhat marginal.

4 out of 5 stars Ascent Note

Sad to say the "springboard" horizontal tree is now broken off about 4' from the end :-(
which raises the grade. Most of the route is 5.8, but that entry move was something else and now is even harder!!

4 out of 5 stars Finally!

This route has taunted me for some time. Brought a couple friends to do Zig Zag for some multi-pitch Trad training and finally decided to do it.
