Description

Near the Mt. Carmel Tunnel, you will find The Headache, a stellar, 3-pitch 5.10 crack climb that receives sun until around noon. Two 60m ropes are needed for abseiling purposes.
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

Near the western end of Mt. Carmel Tunnel on Route 9. Park your car at a pullout at the last pullout before the tunnel. A short 10 minute hike leads to the bottom of the climb.
