***** 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.

Hooking here, choss there, runout free-climbing in chimneys, long pitches, bush wrangling, upside down lost arrows in wet rock... The ledge atop the arch is an amazing campsite. However, it happens to be smack in the waterfall if it rains! Beware the spring and or rain...
