|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.

Climb up a right facing hand crack into a shallow ledge with a bolt. The rest of the climb continues up a loose chimney where you belay/lower from a tree.
40' right of Cave Route
1 bolt and cams up to #4

Heads up - In October 2014 this climb was more than loose. The upper chimney contained a wealth of loose blocks and flakes up to 18-24 inches in diameter. Some were precariously wedged diagonally between the walls of the chimney.
I did a bunch of cleaning on the way down, but there remain a large number of potentially lethal, fully detached blocks in the chimney.
