Lovely route, as title says my first climb in Zion. Dow took me up - thanks, man.
Great route! Did this per Dow's recommendation. The second pitch is awesome..the climbing is so varied and lots of fun! Save at least two .74 camelots for the top portion of the 3rd pitch. We didn't, even though all the descriptions said to and that made for a desperate finish at the top of the 3rd pitch
One of the most amazing handcracks I've ever climbed. Link the first two pitches (full 60 meters)... a journey of sweetness. Thanks Dow for the pointer to this gem!
Just came off the Headache, that is sustained. Very nice line. I thought the 5.10 third pitch was easier than the 1st pitch, but then I am not much of a crack climber. But that does echo some others comments at mountainproject.com. All the visits into Zion, just had not done this yet. That last pitch does eat up gear. We took and used 5-#2's and found use for a #4 at least once. Probably had our photo taken over 300 times. The buses must communicate to each other or something regarding this route since there is a pullout in each direction. This is a horrible line in terms of privacy. Take a piss though and they start to scramble away. Another day, another dollar.
A great route only minutes from the road-a must do for a quick visit to Zion.
