|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.

|EDIT: Went out today 5/8/09 and took it over the roof. From the bolt continue unprotected 5.10 stemming to a good jug below the roof, and a good sidepull at the lip of the roof. place a blue alien at the lip, and a orange TCU just over make a hard pull to a finger lock and crank over. 20 more feet of off angle finger crack leads to a 2 bolt anchor. Can TR with single 60m|

Did the route as one pitch. Kinda Scary! I definitely didnt do the right start and almost cratered before getting my first piece... The jug at the roof is super hollow sounding... Didn't/couldn't get gear before pulling the roof(I ran out of small pieces). I Only managed to get a BD .75 about 10 feet above the roof. Very glad I didnt fall!
NOTE: A BD #4 or 5 is nice for the short offwidth section

I did the FA of this years ago to the two bolt anchor.
I also freed about 90% of the route to the roof and they got into aiders.
