Highway 99 South – Squamish

NEW ROUTE
Frozen Zombie 20m ‘harder than M7’ Matt Maddaloni Dec 13/2009
Quoting Matt’s blog – “New mixed route to the right of Zombie roof. I’m not sure how hard but probably harder than M7. The line pulls out two roofs with the first having no feet and a long reach, figure four needed! The second roof involves lay backing a thin crack with ice in it to reach a hanging short dagger. The above ice slab just takes 4″ stubbies to the anchor just below the start of Jabberwocky. The upper ice section is almost a route in itself. We’ve top roped this route many times over the past couple of years and it always seems to form. What is cool about it is that there is no free route here in the summer because the route completely blanks out past the final roof and without the ice it would never go.”
