Description 

This is one of the most beautiful areas in Zion. There are several spectacular waterfalls that drop into crystal clear pools. Set in a box canyon, with the amazing north face of Lady Mt. on the left and Mt. Majestic on the right, it's an impressive place to be.

Getting There 

From the Zion Lodge, cross the river taking the Emerald Pools trail.

The next 2 long pitches follow face cracks to the top of the vertical climbing. Above here, the quality of the climbing lessens. The FA party climbed many pitches from here to the top of Mt Majestic....[more]   Browse More Classics in UT
