4 out of 5 stars dirty down low, but good

the approach--both the 1st pitch and the approach from the road suck! but the second pitch is great-little bit of wide stuff to keep you focused and a lot of 2s and tight 3s!

5 out of 5 stars Cynthia's Hand Job

First pitch is a bit dirty. The 2nd pitch is one of the best hand cracks in Zion. 160' of 90% #2 hand jams. Most of it has a slightly overhanging tilt making it interesting. Several good rests with the pure (no feet) longest section at the end. Two wide sections, including the start which is a bit of a chimney. When you lose hands again, it is a knee jam for a meter or two to get back to hands. Really good pitch folks. Rivals anything at Indian Creek. Trail is a bit difficult to find. More than 100' up canyon. More like 100yds up canyon, then straight up a loose sandy trail. Look for the huge roof which is above the 2nd pitch that marks the line which is fairly straight up. Take all the 2's you have along with a few 3's. Can place a #4 and #5 as well in those wider sections.

5 out of 5 stars nice route

The first pitch is OK too. Takes a variety of hand size pieces. The second pitch is a bit wide at the bottom--ow pieces not needed here. The bottom of the hand crack takes a # 3 camalot. There is one more area that widens slightly for a #3, and a short section of #4 and #5 camalot. Everything else takes #2. Bring two #2 if you are confident free soloing this size. I used a finger sized piece to protect exit moves, but this really isn't necessary.
