Moonshadow, Zion

Em below Moonlight Buttress and the start of 'Moonshadow' on the right

 Em following Pitch 2 on Moonshadow

Em leads out on Pitch 3 of Moonshadow
The Great White Throne looms behind

Em climbs Pitch 6 of Moonshadow

Splendid views of the Spaceshot Wall with building thunderheads

 Em on Pitch 7 of Moonshadow
The threatening thunderstorm finally caught us on Pitch 9
Reluctantly, we bailed 2 pitches from the summit!
Braving the raging Virgin River a second time for the day was unforgettable.
The rain poured down Zion Canyon as we boarded the shuttle bus and our drenched bodies attracted stares from the other passengers.
