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

This is a worthy, off the beaten path aid route. Pitch one overhangs the whole way. Pitch 2 follows a bolt ladder (3/8" studs) to a roof and crack. The next 2 long pitches follow face cracks to the top of the vertical climbing. Above here, the quality of the climbing lessens. The FA party climbed many pitches from here to the top of Mt Majestic.

Location

End of Emerald Pools area. Far left side of Mt. Majestic. Bushwack to the base from the trail. A thin striking crack marks the start.
