Comments: Some guide books call this route grade IV or IV+. Though it can be done in one long day, it is far more technical than many grade V's in Yosemite. For example, the South Face of Washington's Column has only 3 pitches of C1 aid (the rest is free with a total of 10 pitches). Also, other Zion routes like Touchstone Wall have substantially less aid at the grade IV level (only 3 pitches in this case). I think that Prodigal Sun deserves its original rating of grade V.

Comments: I just climbed this route a couple of weeks ago. That P2 chimney really isn't that bad. Although deep within, the back of the chimney has some fairly good pro.

Overall, P2 is fun (assuming your bag is sandstone chimneys). The last pitch chimney is also fun. The protection there is very reasonab... more >>

Comments: There are actually two places to hike in from.Another road (slightly shorter and less rugged) comes into another parking area further to the south. It is a littler farther from the main area, but provides closer access to the routes further south down the wall.
