|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.

Climbs Much Better than it looks.
P1: 5.9+ 70ft Climb a steep varnished finger crack, to a small bulge 20 feet up. Easier climbing to a 2 bolt anchor on a ledge.
P2: 5.10a 100ft Climb up and left from the anchor to a broken corner. Surmount the ledge with the aid of a protection bolt, and follow the upper corner system to a larger ledge with a 2 Bolt anchor in the back.
P3: 5.10b 100ft Climb a beautifully varnished corner starting with tight fingers opening to tight hands. When the crack gets filled with trees look for a bolt on the face. Easy climbing from the bolt leads to a large ledge with Rap anchor
