Overview
FA: Randy Aton and Scott Fischer, 04/18/78.

Pie for Dinner begins just left of the lowest point of rock, near the center of the west face, and climbs one pitch up a short gully before going up and left to the base of a prominent square-shaped pillar. The crack up the left side of the pillar is a 260-foot offwidth. Scott Fischer originally freed this 4-6 crack using aluminum tube chocks and hexes at 5.10D. Scott had large hands and forearms and is rumored to have been willing to catch huge air in his efforts to free hard cracks around Zion. I would guess that 5.10D is a bit of a sandbag. After the top of the pillar the climb heads up and right up ramps and gullies with occasional 5.7 (1978 5.7) pitches to the top of the west face.

Descent: Same as for the North Ridge.
