Climbing and Shooting in Zion National Park

Just got to spend a week in Zion doing a little climbing and a bunch of shooting.  Had a good time with good friends and good routes.  Here is a little selection from my time there.

The first galleries is of Brittany Griffith and Kate checking out the extremely burly Brian McCray route called the Silverback. It had a show stopping off-width move on it that looked really hard. I am glad I was behind the lens and not on the sharp end for that one.

The girls also got on Sheer Lunacy, a route that branches off left of Moonlight Buttress. One of the best routes I’ve seen in Zion. Good pitches on good rock with good gear. They didn’t get the send on their first day but went back and got the proper redpoint shortly after. I even got to climb this one, my one token climb in Zion.
