Description

This is the Dark, North West facing wall 1 mile up the main canyon from the "Y" intersection that forks off to Mt. Carmel Tunnel. Twin Brothers is 800' to 1,600' high. Aid climbing prevails here typically following thin crack systems on good rock. Steve Chardon and Dave Jones made the first ascent (Lost in Transit) of this face via the lower right hand buttress in 1983. The bigger, main face (Peyote Dreams) was first climbed in 1994 by Eric Rasmussen & Sean Plunkett.
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

From the road, hike up the talus to the base of the wall. Takes about 1/2 hour.

Approach: There are two main drainage systems coming down from the cliff. Take the left drainage (leads to the base of Peyote Dreams), NOT the drainage to the right. Bust right a little more than 3/4 of the way up the drainage to find a faint trail marked with carins. (there is not really any "talus" as stated above) Oct 31, 2008
