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

6 pitches of fantastic 5.9-5.10 crack climbing... with a short 5.8 pitch to finish the formation...

Location

Directly up and behind the Zion Lodge...Starting around the right in a "box chimney" up into a 5" crack to the Anchors. Then you'll these obvious arching splitters that eventually lead up to the lichened green face above.
