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.

This is not the name.. Thanksgiving 2007, I cleanded the old anchor (loose tree) and put in a 2-bolt anchor.

Climb straight in fingers to rattly fingers, to a nice Zion loose corner.

I did the FA of this years ago with a friend.

This is a clean and worthwhile route. The anchor has two bolts and fixed slings/aluminum biners. May 9, 2013

Lots of small gear! Small fingers through the crux to a spot where I was able to place a #1 Camalot. Continue with small gear (.3 and .4 Camalots). Pass a dead bush to a flake that can take larger gear to a 2 bolt anchor.

Really fun route! Crux was 20ish feet or so up for me. Look for good Crimps to the right on the second section of fingers. Apr 8, 2013
