Location: UT : Zion National Park : Mount Carmel Tunnel : Cragmont : Remnants of a party (5.10)

Comments: Stellar route, had a blast on it this afternoon!

A couple notes:
Easily rappels with one 60m rope, though getting to the anchor on pitch 2 is a little frightening as you have to swing into it, backing up your rappel is a great idea.
