Nice to see the stars! Thanks! First ascent Wolfe/Devore.
It's also a great variation to Zebra Zion if you don't want to carry big gear to the top. An easy traverse to the pillar on the top of the second pitch of ZZ

This route is lots of fun with constant edging and no real hard crux. Keep your weight on your feet and crimp forever.
With a 70m rope you can lower to the Zebra Direct anchors from the top. There are 8 or 9 bolts on the extension.
If linking from a lower climb put a sling on the ZD anchor and the 2nd bolt (a sling on the 1st bolt of the extension might help too).
If linking with Zebra Direct either skip the 3rd bolt or use a long sling for minimal drag.
