***** 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.

Always considered this one mildly long pitch and never knew anyone that did it as 2...didnt need a bolt added unless carrying an extra rope up that steep trail was too much of a burden. just a random lurkers opinion though

This is a fantastic pitch. Not to be missed if climbing in this area.

I did this route with only 2 #3 camalots, and 1 #4, but you might was well take 3 of them. If you are linking the whole thing into 1 pitch, you probably want a 4th or 5th.
