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.

The route is on the prow of the tower on the very left edge of the whole Cerberus Gendarmes. You can't help but notice the banana shaped chimney splitting the arete of this tower from the Angels View lot. This may have been done prior to Joe and Brody, or at least attemted as evidenced by old crappy fixed pro on the first pitch and a half. Joe and Brody found no anchors on the tower summit. Joe and Brody put some bolts next to the hard offwidth which makes the pitch less intimidating. Pitch 4 has a bouldery crux. Pitch 5 is super cool.


You'll know when you see it.
