Description

The South Fork of Taylor Creek is the most concentrated area of climbing in Kolob Canyon. It contains many great one pitch lines (including sport climbing), as well as longer aid and free routes such as the legendary Wind, Sand, and Stars.
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

Getting There

Follow the park drive into Kolob and stop at an obvious carpark on the right just as the road curves around to the right. Cross the road and follow a trail into the canyon.
