The top of Kinesava may not be visible in that pic-- it's a white dome that is "in back" of the reddish "prow."

Re: top of Kinesava

The photos in this may help; I think you can see the top near the start of the Trail, but it looks pretty lame from that angle. It's the highest lump on a plateau, set a ways back.

Once again, you make me want to take that trail farther. Just not in summer!

Re: top of Kinesava

I am glad I got you interested. Yes do not do it in summer.

To go to Zion, we flew to Las Vegas and drove north on I-15. I think I could see Moapa Peak from the road. I suppose that is what MoapaPk refers to?

Re: top of Kinesava

Yes, but the name was not originally associated with climbing. I belonged to a website for folks with brain damage, and was supposed to pick a screen name that reflected my world view. I thought of Moapa Peak, stolid, isolated, standing by itself against the storms. The name stuck.
