Dan Snyder on the FA of the 4th pitch.
1st pitch is long with the crux just about half way.
Pitch 5 and 6 haven't been freed yet and more than likely the 6th will be the true crux pitch if it goes free.
Check the new "Zion climbing - Free and Clean" guide book for more info.
Nuts: 1-2 sets (offsets useful)
Cams: 2 each .33-4" - 2 extra 1.5-3" - 1 each 4.5-6"
1 70m or 2 60m ropes.

Just did this route on 11-18-09. We had fun. Clean rock good climbing. 1st pitch was more like mid 11 I'd say. Double set to 3 camalot 1#4 and 1#5 camalot with one extra #1 camalot would've been great. Be careful on the second rappel the crack angles and wants to eat your rope.Next time I would opt for 2 60m ropes intead of 1 70m.

Zach, Bird told me about the rope getting stuck on that second rap. Wish I could have got that belay/rap anchor in further to the right but the rock was junk. Good beta for those looking to do the route.
