Description 

Entering Zion from the south entrance, this boulder sits on the left of the road after the campgrounds entrances (about 0.4 miles from the entrance). The face seen from the road is mostly slab, with some easy warm-ups on the right side (as seen from the road). The south face has a crack running up it, as well as a number of drilled pockets (hence the name). The back side also offers a few lines.

Down-climb the north west corner with the help of a tree. Problems are listed starting from the down-climb tree on the north wast corner, and looping around the south face to the north east corner last.

Getting There 

0.4 miles from the south entrance of the park, on the left.

East Face Center Slab V3-4 6A+  UT : Zion National Park : Drilled Pocket Boulder
On the east face, this problem tackles the main slab. Start on a nice crescent shaped edge and head towards to top. The last couple moves are a bit tricky if you don't have the height to reach the top....[more]   Browse More Classics in UT
