Zion Free Routes, West to East

Bryan Bird has just completed a well done guide book, "Zion Climbing, Free and Clean" (Chris McNamara, Supertopo.com, 2009). It contains some 250+/- free climbs in Zion National Park. As most would be familiar, Zion is better know for its big wall aid routes. Therefore many of these free routes, mostly established by well known locals, are rarely climbed, but worthy.
