Monkeyfinger IV 5.12b
Trip ReportShune’s Buttress and Monkeyfinger in Zion
I haven't posted any TR's in a while so here is a throwback to earlier in the year. Make sure to click through at the end for the full TR.
Zion is a magical and adventurous climbing area. For the first time in years, there was a fairly up-to-date guidebook and I was excited to try routes that I had heard so much about. I’m a huge fan of long crack routes and Shune’s Buttress and Monkeyfinger sounded like just my style. The big unknown in Zion is the rock quality. The sandstone ranges from bullet hard to hilarious sugar stone that falls apart instantly. I’m most comfortable in Yosemite and the previous week and a half in Indian Creek and Red Rocks wouldn’t prepare me for some of the “sand” stone I encountered.
