Riddler\'s Delight, 5.10X
4th Pitch- 55m- 5.9+/ Called out as 5.10 in the guide book, I led it and can’t see the 5.10 move(s), not by Zion standards anyway. There is a lot of potential rope drag on this pitch, so be wary of how you manage your ropes and pro on lead. Head up the deep flaring crack, a bit of off width. You can see the next pitch’s corner over to the left, but if anything, exit the crack out to the face slightly right when it makes sense aiming for a ledge above. Then climb run out 5.7 face above that ledge until you hit a narrow ledge that runs left all the way to the base of that obvious corner you saw from below. Fixed belay. Do not take the dirty corner directly above the 5.7 section.
