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

If you've seen images of this area, you need to hike in and climb here. It is one of the coolest desert sport area I've been too. Most of the holds are big and none of the moves are hard, but by the end, you're getting pumped.

Getting down from Huecos Rancheros and Namaste is a little tricky if you are leading and cleaning since you need two ropes and the routes are very steep.

Its worth noting that the Stewart Green Utah Climbing guidebook incorrectly labels Dost Mitra as Namaste, this is probably the cause of so many votes for Namaste being soft.

Getting There

Park in the lot at the hairpin turn. Hike up the trail (South Fork Canyon) for about 45 minutes. Then canyon will narrow the farther you go. Just before scrambling is required, on your right will be an overhanging wall with several sport routes. These are all beautiful lines.

Rain is very serious! I did see the warning above, but if there is even a chance of rain- use extreme caution! Flash floods can come out of nowhere. Apr 11, 2016
Make sure you follow the right trail! On the way in you will start down a path that leads into a wash area, the temptation is to continue down this wash as there is some resemblance of a trail at the bottom of it, don't go this way (this trail leads to the trad climbs), rather as you begin down the wash look to the left for a staircase-esce step toward a sandy trail. Using this trail will shave a ton of time off the approach Sep 6, 2016
Just a small correction: though this will be obvious when you actually hike in, the wall is on the right side when hiking up canyon, not the left. The climbs are unmistakable, but the description above was confusing. Mar 27, 2017
