might consider posting this as a separate mountain instead of as part of GCNP. Very cool looking route.

I highly agree, I have considered adding it myself, but do not have any info in it, or have not done it, so have not added it. this could make a very good page by itself.

I think SP2 will handle this better. In SP2, we'll be able to have "climbing areas" so we would have something like:

Area > Formation > Route

For this particular case it would be:

Grand Canyon > Zoroaster Temple > Northeast Arête

The same way we would have say:

City of Rock > Elephant Rock > Rye Crisp

Castle Crags > Mount Hubris > Cosmic Wall

Zion > Temple of Sinawava > Moonlight Buttress

I don't have a problem with Zoroaster Temple being listed part of the GCNP (afterall, it is physically in the GCNP) or having it's own Mountain Page. To me, using the main GC page as is the case now follows the Third Pillar of Dana precedent. In either case, I think the GC should be recognized as a climbing / scrambling area - in addition to a hiking / mule-riding area.
