Description Suggest change

"Jerusalem, Jerusalem, who kills the prophets and stones those sent to her!"

This is the 60' main wall of the West Zion crags containing 3 fun trad lines.

The top can be accessed easily by scrambling up the talus that you crossed to get there. The top of the climbs is actually around 40 feet below the top that you can scramble to. There are two large (2 foot diameter) pine trees to choose from at the top that allow you to fix a line and rap down through loose, blocky terrain to a large ledge that accesses the top of all of the climbs. At this time, the best way to climb these routes is to fix a line from this tree and use it as a top anchor for all three of the routes. Otherwise, you're going to need to top out with a follower.

L->R:

A. Golgotha, V1.

B. Jeremiah, 7, 1p, 60', gear.

C. Habakkuk, 9, 1p, 60', gear.

D. Ezekiel, 7, 1p, 60', gear.

ED. Lamentations, 8, 1p, 60', gear or TR.
