The Megamahedral ascends the south or left side of the tower. Begin in a short chimney to a right-facing corner. Follow this corner for most of the first three pitches. Pitch 1 is 60m long and an excellent example typical Zion free climbing. At the top of Pitch 3, the route traverses right across the face to a bolted anchor at the base of a left-facing corner. Fun but strenuous climbing is required to reach the summit of this cool tower. Climb the route in as few as four pitches or as many as six.

Descent: rappel route
