|***** 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.

4 pitches of glorious splitter nailing preceeded by 3 pitches of hard nailing and scary mandatory runout free climbing. Probably not the best choice for a good weekend out. Basically a route to nowhere--a perfect incarnation of the futility of big wall climbing.
splitter cracks on flake buttress to the right of the streaked wall waterfall. We called the feature the Liesure Wall. We were not in a hurry, and having a great time.
