Description

The Oak Creek Drainages is a vast area encompassing the backside of the Three Mary's, West Temple, Altar of Sacrafice,Meridian Tower, the Towers of the Virgin, and the Angelino Wall. There is a collection of climbs in this zone ranging from single pitch to long wall style routes.
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.
