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.

A nice route up some beautiful rock. Thin moves & gear lead up a nice crack. Up high some thin moves remain in lighter colored rock. Good fun.


Located just as you come around the corner from Kung Fu Theater into the Confluence area. An obvious splitter on a red face next to a tree.


Lots of cams from tiny up thru maybe .5 or .75 camalot, nuts, & some runners. Rappel off bolted anchor.

No offense to the poster, but I hate it when people say "lots of cams". What does that mean? 4 of each size? 10? This is the desert. Quantity matters. Here is my suggestion for this one:
1 green c3
2 red c3
4-5 .3 camalot
3-4 .4 camalot
3-4 .5 camalot

This thing is thin the whole way, so make sure you have at least one .3, one red c3, and one .5 for the top section where it angles right after the good rest. Nov 25, 2012

I loved this climb. Reminds me of Indian Creek. The upper section is deceptively hard. Mar 9, 2015
Thanks for the gear list. It may not be what everyone wants but it gives one a place to start. Apr 23, 2016
