East Wall is a small slab, shorter than the other walls and lacking the overhangs down low that characterize the Middle and West Walls, but it provides two quality climbs at easier grades and good access to the Promised Land Ledge above and the exciting upper pitches of Zion Train and Don’t Rock My Boat.


A. Irie, 7, 1p, 55', bolts.
B. The Burning Bush, 7, 1p, 60', bolts.
C. Zion Train, 10-, 2p, 215', bolts.

Getting There 

To reach the East Wall, turn left from the end of the approach trail, and follow the steep gully uphill along the base of the broken rocks above you. Burning Bush / Zion Train starts at the large tree at the top of the gully, and Irie is just beyond it.

This route is not very difficult, but it is fun. The start is fairly slabby and, it is a little steeper near its end. The most difficult move is near the middle, but there are good holds throughout the climb. It looks like the first ascenders cleaned off a lot of lichen. The climb is fairly clean and angles to the left for the 1st three quarters or so....[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado
