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.

All 4 headwall pitches are stretcher 60m leads. Some cool mandatory free on pitch 2, in a chimney over a slab. Good beaking on a few pitches, maybe only one lead bolt on the route. Good two bolt anchors with 4 inch bolts. This route is a good intro to harder nailing in Zion. Maybe do this one before strapping in for a bigger one elsewhere.


Vertical crack system 50' right of Sheer Lunacy. Approach as for Lunar X and Sheer Lunacy
