Climbing To The Top Of Checkerboard Mesa

Checkerboard Mesa is located on the Eastside of Zion National Park and offers outstanding views. Fall colors are popping as well.


The beginning and goal. We had to go around to the left to get to the top from the backside.


Fall colors along the route. Lots of bushwacking required.


My friend Steve climbing without ropes. Nice views though.
