|2016 Seasonal Raptor Closures ***** RAIN AND WET ROCK ***** The sandstone in Zion is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. Holds rip off and climbs have been and will continue to be permanently damaged due to climbers not respecting this phenomenon. After a heavy storm the rock will remain wet, sometimes for several days. PLEASE DO NOT CLIMB IN ZION during or after rain. A good rule of thumb is that if the ground near your climb is at all damp (and not powdery dry sand), then do not climb. There are many alternatives (limestone, granite, basalt, and plastic) nearby.

This many routes concentrated at the entrance to the South Fork will only damage climber/hiker/park relations. It would be a good idea for climbers that want to climb new routes to start hiking into other areas of Kolob and away from heavily used trails. I'm guilty as the next guy for climbing close to trails, but adding routes in these areas will anger the wrong people. When I was in Kolob in the late 90's, the rangers were already really mad about the chalk and overusage at Namaste Wall. I am excited to see that people are liking this area, just a little scared that a few one pitch routes could ban bolts thus preventing some great big adventures from being had in other parts and canyons.

There are 14 bolts on this route if you use the starting bolt to Tail of the Cock. Anchors are above Center Route and create a lot of drag if attempting to TR this route. Recommend belaying from the top and raping the route. Broke several holds off this and there are missing holds on the slab creating a very difficult section.
