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

A bolted face! Start 5 ft left of dire wolf and follow a meandering bolt line on thin edges. Bring you're edging shoes for this one. More technical than pumpy. Resist the urge to grab the bolts for balance.

Location

This route is long and the anchors are 20 ft higher than the end of the hard climbing. There are two options for descent. Option A is to rap to the anchors of dire wolf, 30 ft down and 10 ft to the right, then rap from there to the ground (a 60 will just barely make it). Option B is to use two ropes.

Protection

12'ish quickdraws, 1 small piece (finger size) to protect the beginning.
