The Three Marys Rock Climbing
|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.

Three distinct peaks just east of the West Temple (the right side as viewed from the road.) They offer a variety of single and multi-pitch routes.
The best access I am aware of starts in Springdale and heads west on the road to Tanner Amphitheater. Park just before the gate and walk in. Once to the amphitheater, head right (roughly NW) on a climbers trail up a ridge that passes through the cliff band to the base of the Right Mary.
