Yo -

Was looking to try and head out to Zion this weekend and hop on some classics. Any idea of shade at this time of year for some of the classics from 5.9+ to 11+/12-? Namely Shune's, Iron Messiah, that kind of thing? I know Smashmouth gets AM shade...any other suggestions for this time of year?

agreed Shunes is great. bottom pitches are in the shade in the morning, top pitches in the afternoon. the watchman stuff is good if your fast and can get off before the heat. Rob Warden, Space Lizard
