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.

The Pulpit, a great aid and free climb across the parking lot from the entrance to the Narrows. Climb the bolt ladder to a ledge, then climb 5.5 to the first belay point with a pin.

I replaced two bolts on the Aid Ladder because the bolts just pulled out of the wall! Continue up a crack using aid or free climbing at the 5.10 level.

This climb is classic. November was a great month to climb this route. Also, in November the river is down and the route is great to climb in the early evening.


Take a set of Tricams, work excellent in the crack above the first pitch. Quickdraws.


From The parking lot in the Temple of Sinawava, cross the Virgin River and find the obvious little tower.
