interesting route  Sucess!

A bit of everything on this route. The thin crack on the crux pitch is stellar. Climbed with Jascha. Chilly with the gusty winds; we climbed in down jackets.

Frigid Air Buttress  Sucess!

Start of an 8 day climbing odyssey from Zion to Red Rocks. With Bobby from New York. It was alright, not a huge recommendation. I pulled the off width 5.9 and he got the 5.9 finger crack. Both fun and challenging pitches. Windy as hell in the park, but this route is very well protected from the wind. Weird lone bolt below the off width move. Only bolt on a completely free route (not bolted stations). Someone must have bailed with a bolt kit I guess, does you no good and the crux is well protected with gear. My first trip back in Icebox, but came back the following week and knocked off all of the Necromancer routes, Sensuous Mortician being one of my favorite true trad pitches in the park.
