PhotoDescr: In a sunny morning of March 19, 2017, two of started our climb of Lady Mountain via the standard route (East face, YDS 5.4) from Zion Lodge shuttle bus stop, where this photo was taken from. Sandy exposed ledges can be (and are) very slippery and thus dangerous. The colouir still had some snow. No summit register at the top. The route is marked (I suppose from back in 1923), but we still spent some time route-finding and being late had the concern that we might have to spend a bivy night on the mountain. However, downlimbing was efficient and straightforward, even that we belayed all technical/exposed sections including two rappels. Rappel stations had single bolts each. We were back at the Lodge by sunset. Good fun day, this route certainly belongs to my "To be repeated" alpine peaks list.
