Approach


Hike down the access trail to the southern side of Wamello. This climb is the first route encoutered once at the base of Section #1- Zipa-De-Do-Da Buttress (far right side).

Route Description


Start by climbing a small crack (5.7) that peters out and ends at a large dish (1st bolt). Then continue up and right by following a small right facing corner/flake. Pass two more bolts and top out on a large ledge (70'). Either lower off or rappel the route using two cold shuts. This anchor can also be used to top rope 'Beat Farmer' (5.10d) and 'Hole In The Wall' (5.10a).The ledge also gains access to two other bolts 25 feet left of Snowball's rap anchors. Use these bolts to top rope Aurora (5.11a).
