Emerald Pools Rock Climbing
Fall colors, looking out of the canyon.
|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.

From the Zion Lodge, cross the river taking the Emerald Pools trail.

Each belay has a ledge and the rock for most of the route is exceptional. The last 2 pitches are of lesser quality, but are still worth it especially if you like aid climbing. Mandatory free climbing is about 5.8...[more] Browse More Classics in UT
