"Progeny Peak"

November 13, 2009

A quick repeat of a little Zion gem, this time via a tougher route

Southwest face

CP stands at the bottom of the southwest face of "Progeny Peak". On my first visit I climbed a 3rd class line on the left side. This time we plan on climbing a more direct and tougher line further right.


Kevin climbing the 5th class crux of the route. CP freeclimbed it and belayed the rest of us up.

Very steep slabs

Kevin carefully making his way up some very steep 4th class slabs.

"The Triplets"

View south

View south from "Progeny Peak". The three major summits are "Nippletop", "The Triplets" and "Lost Peak".

Bridge Mountain & The East Temple

Pointy Bridge Mountain (left) and The East Temple (right) as seen from "Progeny Peak". This is one of the views that makes "Progeny Peak" such a great little summit.

"Lost Peak"

"Lost Peak" resides right across UT-9 from "Progeny Peak". It is also one of the easier summits to reach in Zion.
