Ascent Trip Report

Had just a little time to explore Zion and asked at the gate for recommendations. This was the recommendation and it was worth it! Everyone was coming down as I was going up. Met the last two descenders at about the halfway point. Hit the summit right around sunset. Went down full dark (less than quarter moon, plus overcast). Great time!
