I was just wondering if anyone had climbed or has any beta on the swiss-american route on angel's landing. The only topo and description I've seen are from the desert rock, national parks guide book. My crew and I are heading out there over thanksgiving...

I have not done this either but have done a route right next to it. I was going to do it and got alot of beta on it. There is very little aid on this route. What there is is serious A4 on crap for rock. The free climbing is the crux. I believe it is only rated 5.9 0r 5.10 but Zion is a land of sandstone and sandbagging. I have done some 5.9 in Zion that was quite hair raising so don't kid yourself about the 5.9 shiat. The wall is really sweet, the Lowe route is highly recomended, do it clean. The rock looks pretty interesting on the Swiss American. It could be a good route. It will be cold in the shade. It gets sun in the am for about 4 hrs. I'll be out there too from 20th to 27th.
