The Streaked Wall is arguably the most awesome formation in Zion. Its eastern face is continuously overhanging and nearly 2000 feet in length. It is home to 3 hard new-wave aid lines and several obscure routes on its flanks. The ledge running along the base of the main cliff is known as Rubicon Ledge.
Approaching the main wall involves dirty climbing up a lower section of cliff several hundred feet long. The wall is best viewed from where the canyon road splits.

There is nothing but a solitary crack and big air. The first and third pitches are the technical cruxes but each pitch involves a good bit of work. All but the last 3 pitches are A3.Many of the belay and lead bolt...[more] Browse More Classics in UT

Lattitudes: most dangerous, most delicate and prone to destruction. Ladders really suck, bring a drill.
Tale of the Scorpion: best route, most likely to stand the test of erosion/time, lots of safe, fun aid climbing, least amount of bad sugar.
Rodeo Queen: the business. hardest route. Good Friday pitch could send you for a huge ride, like a 300 footer. Direct start to Rubicon was hard and dangerous, maybe best to avoid this. Most bad sugar.
Lord Helmet: My bet, very hard.
Wet Stone: Obviously totally different. Less committing, longer, also quite hard. Kind of like a right side EC route--feature linking, traversing, chimneys, 1700 feet of wall...
