The Watchman Peak
Located in Zion National Park

Date Climbed: 03/04/06

Watchman Peak is a very seldom visited yet prominent mountain in Zion with spectacular views in every direction. The ridge that leads to neighboring Mt Johnson to the south must be first penetrated to gain access to The Watchman (hidden from west looking up from rd.) as seen in TopoZone map and 5th picture shows The Watchman as seen from South side of wash. The summit had no cairn or register upon our visit so a small cairn was created. Two Peregrine Falcons were seen soaring high above summit as we arrived and after soaring around a bit dove at amazing speed to distant valley beneath us to make us envious of a graceful, safe and rapid descent. We were loaded w/ climbing gear yet needed none as route we chose went easily unlike the neighbor next door (Johnson) that kept repeatedly shutting us down and we needed pro yet all our gear rested in the canyon floor when we should have had it on our backs! Maybe next time... ;)
