alpinedonNorth-South Traverse  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 23, 2015


Having lived in the St. George area for a little over a year now, I have been wanting to do the scramble route on Island in the Sky for some time, but just finally got the chance to do it. And what a magnificent scramble it is! Tons of 4th-low 5th climbing, numerous slot canyons, a wild diversity of terrain and all accomplished in a 2.5 hour trip. Super complex terrain though, definitely go with someone who knows the way or you could end up wandering for hours up there. We took a short rope for pack hauling the crux chimney and also used it for an easy rap.

My wife and I have climbed and run in Snow Canyon on several occasions. But my October, 2005 trip was with two young climbers from Springdale (Zion National Park) who wanted to drive to Snow Canyon for this particular climb. Even though I had already left St. George for my Zion, Bryce, Capital Reef and Moab agenda, no one had to twist my arm to head back to Snow Canyon. I love this place. I had just run the St. George Marathon right by Snow Canyon four days earlier.
