Description 

The crack (up the dihedral) varies a lot on this route. There are numerous faceholds and stemming is the key. Also, have fun encountering the few, short, offwidth pods. This seeems to be standard in Zion. The last 15 foot section climbs a thin hands crack.

Location 

The far left of the 3 grouped right facing dihedrals. Roughly 50 yards left of Cherry Crack.

From left to right: The Fat Hedral, Fails of Power, Scarlet Begonias.

Protection 

Two of each from fingers to hands. You may want to triple up in the thin hands (.75 and 1 Camalots) sizes. A 4.5 (old style) Camalot might give you peace of mind.

Not as bad as it looks. The crux is NOT the offwidth. Take extra .75 camalots. A bit harder than I thought it would be as my partner told me it was 5.8. Funner than it looks.

Love this route...I've found it exciting every time. For me, the second OW section is the crux, which uses a wild country #5 to protect. The stemming and face holds really bring this route together, just when you think you can't go up any more you find a feature on the wall behind you.

I agree, this is a great climb! Lots of variety in crack size and moves.
