Zion, Coke Explosion

Previous: Red Rocks, Orange Clonus

Everything felt better at Zion. The Watchman Campsite is twice as nice and it was deserted. But it was still really cold in the morning. We drove to the Temple of Siniwava to start Monkeyfinger but it was frigid. This photo of Angel's Landing is meant to convey the cold.
It's another exciting picture on Ski Sickness

So we hopped on a sunny, four-pitch route called The Coke Explosion. Mike leads the first pitch.

The next pitch was supposedly 5.10 but neither the lieback nor the offwidth were that difficult. What gives?

Mike leads a short runout on a chimney.

That was a great Zion warmup route. Now to camp for beers.

Next: Zion, Monkeyfinger
