***** 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.

Gorgeous sandstone canyon with great solitude.

Getting There 

Park at the Taylor Creek Trailhead. Walk east a mile or so to the first historic cabin (appears on your left). Take a faint trail north and join the creek bed of the stream that comes out of the North Fork. Follow this creek bed until you have to leave to approach your selected climb.
