Zig Zag

Up on Yamnuska for the 3rd time this year, Andrew wanted to check out Zig Zag, a route his buddy Jon Walsh put up a few years back now. The few who did it so far reported good rock and airy positions, as it turned out they were right. Definitely a nice addition to the Bowl Wall with mainly sport climbing character. 10 draws, a couple of small cams and a set of nuts will do fine for adequate protection. We rappeled the nearby "Greyscale" with a 70m single rope, which brings you back to the Base in half an hour. The hike to the base is really pretty right now, every plant is soaked in rich green and the montaine flowers are in full bloom. Lady Slipper, Wood Lilly and Indian Paintbrush to name a few.

Andrew has put up a lot more and better images on his blog., which is a recommended read for people playing in the Rockies.
