Aires Butte & Keyhole Canyon

When: April 2007
Parnters: Matthew Holliman
Route: SE Face (5.5) / Keyhole (3BII)
Mileage/Gain: 3/1,000

Another great weekend in Zion. Beautiful weather.

Me and Matthew Holliman climbed Aires Butte on Saturday morning then skipped on through Keyhole Canyon afterward. Water levels were low, and bolts had been installed at the first rappel (weren't there last time I went through).

Took it easy the rest of the day, mostly prowling around to scope out approaches to a couple of features I was looking to climb, including Smithsonian Butte, which I returned to and climbed in the fall with Stan Pitcher.
