The Sanctuary is a very remote technical peak in a rarely visited area of Zion. The climbing is on soft white rock slabs with poor gear at times.

Getting There 

The Sanctuary is located in the Phantom Valley off of the West Rim Trail in the Zion deep back country. This peak is about 12 miles in from Lava Point. The approach is largely off trail with possible technical sections.
