Description:

rad route, across the street from the grotto. Starts out sporty with draws. The 10c section is "mellow" according to Zion standards. The next pitches go up a bitchen chimney, that is runout yet easy. I think I did it in 8 pitches, yet can't say for sure. You need to ropes to descend. Be real carefull pulling ropes they tend to get stuck on the lower rappel. Killer views on the summit

4 out of 5 stars Good freeclimbing

the fifth pitch is excellent, perfect patina hands in a corner. A killer 5.10 pitch. The rest of the route is worth doing just for this pitch.

The last pitch is great at solid 10. The chimneys were friendly with holds

4 out of 5 stars Iron Messiah

Way to hot, but what the hell, literally! A classic, really enjoyed it, but I love dihedrals, chimneys and the like, particularly when it is hot. We combined 1 and 2; 7 and 8. Makes a lot of sense. Route goes relatively fast. Watch for that "out of order" rap station that saves you a rap in my descent notes. Super day on the rock switching leads with Zach, as always.
