5 out of 5 stars GU is the new

Park at the little pullout for Ashtar Command tower west of the guard shack just west of the big tunnel. Hike back to the tunnel then take the trail up climbers left. Follow it for a few 100 feet till you see it. You'll know it when you do for sure.
Yea after the first pitch I was gassed. The crack is solid hand jams the whole way. The first belay isn't comfy but solid. Second belay nice stance. Third belay is good too.

4 out of 5 stars Headache

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.
