Possibly stupid question- I'm taking the wife to Zion in a couple weeks. Cerberus Gendarme, The Confluence and Practice Cliffs are all open, correct?

Any other suggestions for great 10a and easier cracks would be appreciated as well.

cerebrus is open, and bakes in the sun all day so bring sunscreen. the confluence are is only open on the SW face...so the aspect that faces the campground not the wall right above the switch backs, but for your purposes those climbs are open (the moderate crag). practice cliffs are open as are the cragging routes at the base of great white throne.

go and talk to the ranger at the wilderness permit desk. they have the details and maps regarding the closures, and are very nice people early in the season before they get burnt out helping idiots like me who ask to many questions.

Thanks for the beta! Most of my experience is in Kolob, where the temps always seem to work out.

That's funny, I've also noticed that the rangers and everyone else there is much happier early in the season.
