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

Description

This is the crack that is visible on the small formation behind (North of) the small seasonal pond (usually filled in with grass) just above the debris dam on the hike up south fork. The crack starts out nice and varnished but soon turns scary and decomposed. Walk off the top.

This one is old-school 5.7 (i.e. a sandbag for the beginning trad climber). It is quite scary towards the top and there is nothing solid to anchor to. Jun 2, 2013
