Comments: I think the 5.8+ grade is spot on, due to the excellent hand jams and varied (and large) features for the feet.

Comments: The description above more or less matches the line we followed. Pro can be a little tricky in some spots - there are more small stopper placements (#3 to #5) than one typically expects to rely on for a route of this difficulty, but they seemed pretty solid. Do be wary of loose stuff towards the end of the 2nd pitch. Enjoyable climbing with an adventurous feel.

Comments: Good route - characteristic of the 'short but sweet' nature of a lot of the climbs in this area.

Comments: great shot - really conveys the raw connection to the earth that climbing in the desert makes us feel.

Comments: Interesting and varied. And clean. I wish there were more climbs like this at Blair. I also wish I had a million dollars.

Comments: Spectacular. The Aces and headwall are great, but for me, the 'endless' 3rd and 4th class above the headwall is what made the route amazing. My partner and I just kept saying "wow!!!" I was struck by how solid most of the rock was, given the elevation.

We gained the ridge via the gully on the NW or N side of Ypsilon Lake, which was very straightforward. It is easily visible on the opposite side of the lake. For descent, we st... more >>

Comments: More than any other that I have done, this route gives you a taste of the full spectrum of Zion climbing. A true classic!

Comments: I will attempt to add some information - although my experience on this route is somewhat dated (from a solo ascent in the late 1990's), I would call it more like A3+. Since it doesn't get much traffic, I doubt if the difficulty has changed that much. The 3rd pitch is probly the crux, although the first and second pitches have some nervy spots as well. I recall a fair amount of thinnish nailing, but not long strings of scary stuff. I enjoyed it and thought it was a good route.

Comments: Tony B's comments on the last pitch brought back some spooky memories for me - my experience was very similar. I remember that little creosote bush - its base is/was about as thick as your pinkie. This was about 1996...
