How did the Zodiac Route on El Cap get it's name?

-- Al Smith (, March 13, 2002


When Charlie Porter was putting the route up, he made two failed attempts before finishing. When he came off the wall each time he learned that the Zodiac Killer in San Francisco had killed again. The killer was killing when Charlie would go up on the wall.
