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.

Squeeze Play 5.10a 6a 18 VI+ E1 5a UT : Zion National Park : Cerberus Gendarme
This is the prominent crack to the right of Cave Route. It starts in a small-hands splitter and moves up through two broken cracks to great arete climbing. Folks most often protect in the small crack and climb the arete.You could also choose to weasel around in the offwidth crack, but that makes for some difficulty reaching the chain anchors at the top of the pitch.Super fun route. Some great strength and technique moves with a great view....[more] Browse More Classics in UT
