Description 

This crag has a bunch of nice single pitch sub-5.10 routes and a few fun longer routes. Some of them require two ropes to rappel. This area gets afternoon sun.


Getting There 

It's a short uphill hike on a climbers' path starting just down canyon from the main Zion Lodge building. Park there, or take the shuttle, depending on the season.
