Weathering Heights, WI 4

1st Pitch/55m- Start right on easy ice and move back center, right and then left again to maneuver above protruding rocks separating the falls. Obviously the condition of these falls could vary drastically from year to year. The crux and steepest ice is 30-40 meters up below the before mentioned rock buttress. We went left for the final 10 meters, but it goes right as well, just steeper. The route eases after this steep section and you should find a reasonably comfortable, albeit small, belay stance at about 55 meters.

Re: great shot!

Radek, don't think I have not been tempted to break out the crampons on some of the sandstone....my desert partners were telling me there is some decent ice to be had in and around Zion...taking my ice gear in March and going hunting, but am sure that is too late...cheers
