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

Lots of great cragging and multi-pitch adventures here with a mix of old & new routes on a north-ish facing wall. Lots of shade, a short-ish approach, and quality rock make this a great area. There are some nice sport routes here as well, a rarity for Zion.

Getting There

Park at the last turn-out before entering the Zion-Mt. Carmel tunnel from the west. The trail starts on the North side of a stone retaining wall up to the right end of Tunnel Wall, Follow this around to the right (away from the tunnel) for 10 minutes or so to the Kung Fu Theater.
