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

With the right weather, large ice climbs form in these canyons on the east side of Zion.

Getting There

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 from where you can't drive. 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), where you can park. Enter the park on the Observation Point trail and turn right. The park boundary fence leads to the Bo Beck's drainage and northwest is the Nuclear Sunrise / Sugar and Snice drainage.
