Don't normally sign summit logs twice, but I think a weird polished thing has occured on the lieback...watch the transition at the top of the crux where you move from lieback position to a decent ledge....my hand slipped and totally surprised me, and since I ran it out, took a 20' backward whipper, which you would rather avoid...my shoulder is tweaked for it. Nobody wants to fall on 5.9 terrain, going to hit something. I advise protecting with a 1" right below that ledge in case that polished part of the crack does the same to you.

Well the name turns you off, so no wonder it took me this long to get around to it. Despite all the folks watching, this is an incredible single pitch in Zion. When temps get over 100F, hit this and Toliet Cracks up about 4PM or later.....we did 3 laps each on this crack, we liked it so much. Very, very nice....a bunch of lieback with some nice fist jamming in the off width at the top. Really enjoyed, good clinic on placing pro in uncomfortable positions climbing crack.
