Access Issue: Road Work in Kolob Canyon Details
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.

Description

I did this route by myself the weekend before college senior year finals. Hahahahaha. It was dangerous! I was young, dumb, and fired up. Super Senior climbs the crack immediately right of Wind Sand Stars and joins the Futura after 6 or 7 pitches. I vaguely remember the crux was probably the last "new" pitch. Crux involved beak tips for a long ways over a slab. I drilled a beak hole or two toward the top of the pitch.

Location

Crack immediately right of Wind Sand Stars and between WSS and The Futura.

Protection

Nailing stuff, beaks...
