Warning 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 Suggest change

Known as a canyoneering route in the summer, Englestead has a few big ice routes, including the granddaddy, the Zicicle.

Getting There Suggest change

Take North Fork Road from highway 9 until you meet Twin Knolls Road (5.4 miles). In some years, both roads will be impassible a couple hundred feet from the intersection. If so, hike one of the two approaches:

1) Continue up North Fork Road for 2.8 miles. There will be a parking area and rough road to your left between two fences. Follow this down the drainage, passing old logging equipment until you reach the head of the canyon (another ~1.5 miles).

2) Continue up Twin Knolls Road until it tees into Beaver Road. Take a right and follow the road to its end, the East Mesa Trailhead (signs for Observation Point).
