Comments: I climbed this a couple days ago. It was a bit sandy, but mainly in the easy sections. After our ascent, I'd say it is perfectly fine and climbable. We continued to the top and even the final chimney pitch is now fine.

If doing the monkey finger variation, you can stash all gear from BD #3 and up at the anchor after the second pitch and retrieve after rappel.

Comments: Awesome line!

Some comments:

It is not obvious where to turn off the main trail if approaching from Zion lodge. Using intuition and the path of least resistance will see you to the base.

There is no need for BD #4's. The second last pitch eats BD #3's. We had two for this pitch, but you could easily place three or four if this size is hard for you.

One BD #5 is useful for pitch two. After this pitch, stash it and retrieve it after rappel.

No nuts nor small gear needed.... more >>

Comments: The doubles in the larger cams come in very handy on the upper pitches. P5 generally gradually opens up to 3" and eats lots of gear. The final pitch you definitely want doubles of 3". A 4" could also be used, but it is not worth lugging all the way up in my opinion.

Too bad you didn't go higher. The upper pitches are really good!

Comments: We got on this route the other day I thought I'd provide a few comments. It is a good route with a few high quality pitches. However, a few spots are very overgrown and need a scrubbing - mostly P5 and P7. This would drastically improve the quality of experience on the route. It is currently climbable, just not that pleasant for those couple pitches.

We had doubles to 6" with an extra 4" piece and this seemed to work fine.

For any short leaders, be careful on the crux pitch as you're forced ... more >>

Comments: Awesome route!

For those looking to do this climb, but hesitant because of the 'R' rating, I did not find it as bad as the guidebook and other comments suggests. The crux on the final pitch is at the bolt and thereafter it is maybe 5.10 for a while. Although it is runout, it is not 5.11. This is for both tall and short people.
