Dow WilliamsFinal Seconds  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Mar 15, 2017

Dow Williams

With Chris from Detroit. Definitely not the best route in Zion. Plenty of choss on the entire thing really, but how many 5.9's are there right? The 5.9 pitches offer stout cruxes, no doubt why Bryan calls it 5.9+. Zion 5.9+ as well, in other words 5.10b/c at Red Rock. I led all the pitches. Pretty much straight up. The 2nd pitch overhanging/roof is the crux of the route for sure but protects well with two #4's. A #5 comes in handy at another (bit weird) crux roof on pitch 4. You definitely do not need a #6 as Bryan calls for. The break I found on the lower cliff that leads straight back to town is golden if you can find it.
