Way up on the classic pitch
My friend Nick and I went to Zion a couple summers ago to climb this beautiful rock. This is a picture of me leading this beautiful pitch of Moonlight Buttress. It started to rain when I was about half way up. I stayed dry because there is a large roof overhead. It was a different story for my balayer. We rapped off due to the rain. The sandstone weakens to 1/3rd its strength when wet.
