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.

This route ascends the middle (guts) of Angel's Landing. Look for a topo in the visitors center.

No matter what, make sure you allow time for the ending two pitches. Everybody that I've talked to about this route, including myself, says that they take longer than one would think. It's not simple scrambling, especially if you have a pig.

Awesome route, with great exposure, with an enormous array of climbing. Very adventurous.



Standard Zion rack, cam hook, an angle or two, a few long Lost Arrows.
