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.

Description

To climbers, Lady Mountain is the beautiful and impressively shear, north facing wall in the upper Emerald pools area. From it's summit, this 2,200' wall is perhaps the steepest, and smoothest in Zion. One grade VI has been done here. The upper pools area is memorable as you are surrounded on 3 sides by large sandstone monoliths. Heaps and Behunin canyons drain into this stunning area.

The southeast side sports the standard mountaineers hike to the summit. A short rope will be needed for a few pitches along this cool trail. Views from the summit are unique. The hike takes at least 1/2 a day...Great hike, A must do!

Getting There

Take the Emerald Pools trail.
