***** 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 is a beautiful zig-zagging splitter finger crack on a black varnished wall. With the crux about 2/3 the way up.


Park at the obvious parking area on the right, cross the road. Walk up the trail to the second gully, witch drops south from the obvious towering buttress to the north. Follow a sandy trail up the gully to a slop on the right of a cave like amphitheater. Continue north to a small buttress behind some ponderosa pines. The route goes up the obvious crack.


Small cams and nuts. 3 bolt anchor/rap station at the top of the climb.
