Zenith was really fun. It was my first "nailing" route. I did it with Nills Davis of SLT in 5 days. The route has pretty virgin rock (very few scars or fixed gear) with some expanding sections. The hooking was difficult and the hauling was easy once you get into the white sections. Overall I think that Zenith is one of the best routes on Half Dome.
