Immaculate Conception  Sucess!

Decent route, three good good crack pitches combined with three fast moving pitches land you on one of the better Zion summits for spectacular views. I just love the amphitheater made up of West Temple, Sundial, Altar of Sacrifice and Meridian Tower. I led the fourth pitch and it was the crux but was a tame 5.10 by Zion standards. The first pitch was the best lead in terms of rock and consistent crack. The third pitch was pretty good as well. Local guy I was with did not know what the hell he was doing (climbing or route finding at that point and time) and we descended north and circumvented back to the east notch. I have done other routes up there since and found that just running down the eastern ridge to the notch will go with much less bushwhacking and trouble.
