Description:

the striking black dihedral behind the retrooms. 120' of crack/corner to a three bolt belay/rap station. Some of the best crack lybacking I have ever done. A powerful route. 5.9****. Someone put a bolt in half way up w/o a hanger which should be removed. excellent climb

5 out of 5 stars Tourist Crack

Well the name turns you off, so no wonder it took me this long to get around to it. Despite all the folks watching, this is an incredible single pitch in Zion. When temps get over 100F, hit this and Toliet Cracks up about 4PM or later.....we did 3 laps each on this crack, we liked it so much. Very, very nice....a bunch of lieback with some nice fist jamming in the off width at the top. Really enjoyed, good clinic on placing pro in uncomfortable positions climbing crack.
