im heading to zion in late january and would love to get on some easier hand/finger cracks. if anyone has some climbs they really loved, let me know. looking for 5.10 or under. would prefer multipitch to single.
currently looking at the organasm and ashtar command. thanks!
Take Back the Rainbow is less visited than a lot of the other 5.10 routes in the canyon and I think it climbs really well. Feels adventurous and the arch at the tops is pretty unique.
The Kung Fu Theater is another good stop for 5.10 and harder cragging.
A newer route that seems to not have a lot of traffic, but has decent climbing is ACL Arete. I'd say 10+ is an inflated grade, I seem to remember a bolt protected overhang at the start and then a lot of 5.9 climbing. summitpost.org/acl-arete-5-10-...
Cowboy Ridge is a fun adventure with pretty good climbing on a mile long ridge.
Led By Sheep for 5.6 petrified sand dune climbing. Climbed it at sunset and descended under a full moon around this time last year (*not crack climbing*)
