West Temple, III, 5.8

Eventually you will find yourself descending to another deep notch. This descent goes right and utilizes a tall mature tree for the final step or two to the ground (photo). Regain lost ground to the left of the ridge. Again you will find a ridge that goes from scrambling to hiking back to scrambling and forms a staircase of sorts to the base of the red colored sandstone and crux of the route.

Nice photo Dow. I remember this section. Just before the downclimb into the pine tree!
Great perspective of the ridge and short climb ahead!
