First pitch is a bit dirty. The 2nd pitch is one of the best hand cracks in Zion. 160' of 90% #2 hand jams. Most of it has a slightly overhanging tilt making it interesting. Several good rests with the pure (no feet) longest section at the end. Two wide sections, including the start which is a bit of a chimney. When you lose hands again, it is a knee jam for a meter or two to get back to hands. Really good pitch folks. Rivals anything at Indian Creek. Trail is a bit difficult to find. More than 100' up canyon. More like 100yds up canyon, then straight up a loose sandy trail. Look for the huge roof which is above the 2nd pitch that marks the line which is fairly straight up. Take all the 2's you have along with a few 3's. Can place a #4 and #5 as well in those wider sections.
