Description

This very cool wall sports the well-traveled clean aid climb Spaceshot (C2). The wall's name is very appropriate as the crack features on the formation lean to the right.

The descent is fairly easy. From the top of the formation hike southeast (downcanyon) following trails and cairns to a large tree with rap slings. When I was there a faded pair of jeans was next to the tree which could easily be seen from a distance. One rap leads to a ledge which is traversed downcanyon to another set of rap anchors. For double-rope raps from here lead to the ground.
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.

Getting There

Follow the canyon road nearly to the end (about 1 mile down-canyon from Temple of Sinawava). The Leaning Wall is directly across the canyon from Moonlight Buttress. Park in the large pullout on the left side of the road below the formation.
