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

This route is a nice warm up to Zion rock. You can pull in, get to the temple parking or bus stop (depending upon the season), use the bathroom, then walk 150 yards to this route. The route can be seen from the parking area.

Look back to the right of the narrows trail for a set of anchors about 100' up off of the ground in a left-facing dihedral.

Follow a decent trail back the the route and rack up there. Take a rope-bag or tarp to keep your stuff out of the fine sand at the base. Also take care on the descent to keep the rope away from the cacti nearby.

Climb said corner to the anchors, and descend via a single rap (we used a 70m rope with some to spare. A 60m rope should work as well, but use caution. I do not believe a 50m could make it.
