Description 

The Temple of Sinawava contains the crags at the end of the Zion Canyon scenic road. There is a bit of cragging in the vicinity but the centerpiece of the area is the classic free route Monkeyfinger (5.12 IV).

Also of interest to climbers are the excellent bathrooms complete with flush toilets and running water.

Excellent hiking is also found in the area with the Virgin River Narrows a few miles up canyon along the river.


Getting There 

Take the shuttle bus (or drive in the off-season) to the very end of the road. Monkeyfinger follows the darkly varnished corner (look for the slings on the anchors) on the southwest-facing wall about 100 yards down from the parking area.

What a route! Excellent. At only 700 feet, this is one big little wall. Pitch 1: Munge Tower- a sandbox down low leads to a descent 5.9 squeeze chimney.
