Access Issue: 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. Seasonal Raptor Closures Details

Description

The Temple of Sinawava contains the crags at the end of the Zion Canyon scenic road. There is a bit of cragging in the vicinity but the centerpiece of the area is the classic free route Monkeyfinger (5.12 IV).

Also of interest to climbers are the excellent bathrooms complete with flush toilets and running water.

Excellent hiking is also found in the area with the Virgin River Narrows a few miles up canyon along the river.

Getting There

Take the shuttle bus (or drive in the off-season) to the very end of the road. Monkeyfinger follows the darkly varnished corner (look for the slings on the anchors) on the southwest-facing wall about 100 yards down from the parking area.
