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


Follows a bold arete just to the right of the ephemeral waterfall at the end of the road in Temple of Sinawava. Two short pitches gain ledge system. Remainder of route follow incipient right leaning cracks (thinnish nailing, nutting) up buttress through and a few small overhangs. Pendulum/TT to left gains base of long and perfect hands crack to obvious pine tree guarding summit.


Find waterfall, look at first buttress to right.


Standard Zion aid/free rack with emphasis on knife blades and LA's for aid section. Bring hooks.
