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

A couple hundred feet past Last Rites on the right hand side of the main canyon of South fork. A difficult slab route with two distinct cruxes.
The first is a funky mantle to some delicate sidepulls and the second is a strenuous and delicate step up smear to a pinch. The rest of the pitch is fun and aesthetic.

Protection

Superb friction climb! Very safe with lotsa bolts (ground up FA). It was originally rated 5.11d, and I agree with that. Jun 2, 2013
