One of Zion’s classic roof crack routes. This route has been referred to as a good starter or training aid climb. Most parties opt to free climb instead. Climb a right-facing corner to the large and obvious roof with a hand crack in it. Continue up thin cracks to the top of the buttress. This route doesn’t reach the summit of The Organ.
