Winter Solo of Moonlight In A Day
Saturday March 10, 2012 2:04pm
Went back to Zion this February to make another ascent of Moonlight. This time I left the partner and the haulbag on the ground. Enjoy. Sorry for not posting to ST but it's easier for friends and family to access the blog. Enjoy.

Heck Yeah!

Giving some inspiration. I soloed in February but fixed day 1, topped out day 2 and hiked out day 3. I may ditch the ledge and haul bag and go for it next time!
