The Cerberus Gendarme formation is on the east side of Zion Canyon - no need to cross the river!
Take the shuttle to the Big Bend stop (as for Prodigal Sun, Moonlight Buttress). The Cerberus Gendarme lies directly across the river from Moonlight Buttress. From the shuttle stop, backtrack the road for a couple hundred yards to the climbers' access trail. Look for the posted trail markers and please use them as to prevent unnecessary erosion! Approach time: 5 minutes.

Scarlet Begonias 5.11a 6c 22 VII+ 22 E3 5c UT : Zion National Park : Cerberus Gendarme
This is the fairly short flake right of Fails of Power. It climbs through a pod and into a handcrack for 30 feet; this section goes up a right facing dihedral. From there, you'll have to undercling right out of the small roof, and then up another 15 feet to the chains. The lower section in the dihedral has some face holds for feet. Take advantage of them....[more] Browse More Classics in UT
