Park at the 2nd pullout after the tunnel...Drop into the wash and walk ~5min, looking for this broken crack system on the right splitting the headwall...Find a faint easy scamble to the base....Do an easy boulder problem to a good jug, clip 2 more bolts, and set up for the crux.. bust through and enjoy good jugs for another 5 bolts.

12 bolts plus anchors
Can be seen from parking area

This route was definitely out of the ordinary for Zion. It's rated 5.11+, and if this wasn't Zion it would make sense. If it were me, I'd say 5.10d/5.11a(because it's in Zion). Also, beware of choss. It is not in Bird's book, therefore it's rarely climbed and accumulates a lot of dirt, making it more difficult. (Which could add to the higher rating). All in all, really fun sport route in Zion, and very well protected.
