Members of the Wasatch Mountain Club enjoyed a beautiful day of rock climbing in the Standsbury Mountain range about 45 minutes west of Salt Lake City. The Valley of Zion is quality sport climbing on limestone with great holds and a lot of friction. We climbed Blob's Your Aunt with 10 bolted routes ranging from 5.8 to 5.10 and a lot of 5.FUN. The temperature was perfect. The wind was just enough to keep the mosquitoes from relentlessly attacking us. And the sounds of nature (I-80 and the near by shooting range) were music to our ears. The Valley of Zion is a great place to climb if you are looking for a place with a lot of moderate bolted routes and no crowds. Thank you Sharon for organizing this activity.
