Gunswinger 5.10

***** 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.

This corner crack starts out as tips and widens to hands. It's even got some footholds! Around the corner to the left are the anchors for Crimson King and Salty Dog Arete.


Climbs a right-facing corner just to the right of Crimson King.


Stoppers, one set of cams to #3 BD c4, with extras in finger sizes.
