Tango is listed as climb "B" in the atta...

***** RAIN AND WET ROCK ***** The sandstone in Zion is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. Holds rip off and climbs have been and will continue to be permanently damaged due to climbers not respecting this phenomenon. After a heavy storm the rock will remain wet, sometimes for several days. PLEASE DO NOT CLIMB IN ZION during or after rain. A good rule of thumb is that if the ground near your climb is at all damp (and not powdery dry sand), then do not climb. There are many alternatives (limestone, granite, basalt, and plastic) nearby.

Tango begins just left of Tail of the Cock on Rooster Pinnacle.
Pitch 1 - Start out with 5.10a moves protected by small stoppers. Lieback and jamming follows for 30 feet to a very comfortable belay ledge.
Pitch 2 - Continue up 10 feet, traverse left across a platform until you can step further left across to the main crack. Small wired's and tcu's protect thin face moves up to clip a bolt, then left onto a small ledge. Traverse up and right from here reaching for an angled ledge and huecos above. Continue jamming and liebacks to a platform. Step left clipping a second bolt and continue up and left to anchors.


Tango begins just left of Tail of the Cock on Rooster Pinnacle. It trends left to end at the top of Pillar of Salt. Consult "B" in the photo for more details.


2 bolts, # 0, 1,2,3 tcu's, cams to 3.5, small to medium stoppers and lots of runners.
