That route is classic before you even leave the ground, Beautiful steep line and short approach, then you get those stellar crack pitches......

I was fortunate enough to get a solo of this in Feb.. Probably a little cooler than your trip. Thought I'd post a couple of shots from the trip myself.



And yes, there are some great cracks that run on for a long ways, kind of dreamy. Gear gobblers they are.



It was my first winter wall, and words cannot begin to explain the grand scale of the beauty of this line, the views, the sounds(ice calving off all times of day and night), and the grip Zion has for grabbing ones soul, probably more so without distractions of conversation or people.




The higher you go, the better the view.



Even the summit has a sureal view, very mellow tones of extreme terrain.



Bob

PS. I did not post to steal your thunder, just to share photos of like interest. Also I only did the mandatory free, nice job cranking on that crack, steep and unrelenting.

I was gonna say "WOW", but that was already taken a few times. Not the typical perspective for pics of a leader, you have a nice face, but I gotta ask....

What does your ass look like?

I'm more impressed with the photographer, who is obviously free soloing one handed. LOL

Great shots! Good job of keeping the rope out of the picts and keeping in close to get the feel of the climb.

Great photos Gaar! I had heard a lot about them and I'm psyched to now see them. Heard a lot about this day when I was out there in October.
