Space Shot: Summer Climbing in Zion

by AJD
Saturday September 1, 2012 3:31pm
Last week my brother and I were planning on trying to run the Grand Traverse in a day but our plans were derailed when I badly sprained my right ankle. Deeming it untrustworthy to move quickly over such consequential terrain, we were left searching for a more unathletic mountain adventure. We decided to move from an aerobic based activity to an engineering problem and started to think about a straight forward wall to aid. Being idiots, we found ourselves in Zion National Park in the middle of summer.

Glad you took some photos. The desert rainbow is appealing and the view of the Virgin and the Great White is an unusual perspective. Appalling lack of judgement or stupit? No matter. Ya done learned.

Looks like an awesome route, great job. Could've been hot and bitchy up there, but looks like you two suffer heat well ;-)

Ah great memories from 1998!

Can I ask you where the topo image came from on the JD blog? I've been looking for that photo for years.

Cheers,

Enty, the topo is from mountainproject.com. I think the link is the caption of the photo.
