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


A prominent crack in the large face to the right of Tales of Flails, Scarlet Begonias, and Fails of Power. It begins at a tree and climbs the left-leaning crack to a vertical crack.

Many simply climb the first pitch (5.9).


A selection of TCUs for the start (#2 - #4), a few #2 cams and a couple #.75 cams. This will get you to the first set of anchors. Following beyond this requires larger pro (#3 & #4 cams) to get up the large crack and offwidth pod (a #6 could be handy as well).
