With its own start stance left of Sideaways and Pedestal, the routes "crux is likely the seeping 5.7 bottom 10 feet finger crack in a right open book corner. Coming to it dry, its easy, wet, diff. Past this corner the route is dry, most of the year due to the angle of the route and steep hwall to the left of the crack system (toprope fun). Beyond the bottom wet portion a slab riddled with holds and pro veers right to a corner system. The mid portion of the climb is steep, but managed with positive holds, jams and for the taller (6'+) a full stem fixes the bottom crux. Meters below the top, a ledge lends to the routes crux with a high reach jam unlocking 5.6 climbing to a tree anchor at the top. A madrone tree juts out at the top corner of the route, acting as a good marker, with multiple tree anchors. The top of Ped/Lost Art/BloocCrks is a stones throw from Zion Trains top anchor.

Descent Options:

Rap trees atop it or nearby station at Lost Art. Walk around east, down, then back west is less than 15 minutes.
