3 out of 5 stars fun route..

that looked easier than it was. The crack is much smaller than what it looks, largest piece I used was .75 and more smaller stuff. Its a little dirty but well worth it.

This was one of my first trad leads. Being a sport climber previously, I whipped at the begining of the finger crack.
ONe of the best routes inthe canyon.

August, 1988. This was the first free ascent of Last Rites. I was working at Kolob as a Ranger and had the untapped South Fork as my playground. On the first Aided recon of Last Rites we found a 2" angle laying on its side in the dirt in a pod at the top of the route. Who knows when the first ascent occurred. If anyone has its history please email me!
