|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.

I have a line fixed on Karmic Edges (11+/12-) over by space shot. 3/28/2016
PLEASE LEAVE MY LINE ALONE.
I attempted the route, the bolts are most definitely original and may or may not hold a fall. I am not overestimating the severity of the degradation. I have pulled bolts in zion by falling on them, these are solidly worrisome. They are heavily corroded, 3/8ths and most, likely to be very shallow.
Thank you Gaar for the hangers, the bolts may have been fine when you did that replacement, but now they need to go.
I will jug the line and replace with 1/2x5in glue ins for all 8 lead bolts and 2 anchors.
This route is classic and deserves the face lift
PLEASE DON'T TAKE MY ROPE.
Or if you saw my other post, don't cut 8ft off the end off my route.
