***** 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.

I've talked to Calder about this line and it's supposed to be awesome clean corners all the way to the top, no loose, groveling pitches. However, the first pitch is 80 feet or so of just hooking with no bolts.

Yep that is it.
There is a ton great free climbing on it, and no loose blocks or grovel pitches.
