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. Seasonal Raptor Closures Details

Description

A beautiful line up a clean corner. Climb the obvious corner that starts at .5 camalot and eventually narrows to nothing. When the crack gets super tiny and the climbing gets harder, move right to some face holds, then back left into the corner. Near the end, 2 bolts lead past some face climbing to an anchor.

Location

Located about half-way down the Kung Fu Theater. Once you get there it is hard to miss.

Protection

Several cams from tiny thru .4 camalot, singles of .5 and .75 camalots, 2 bolts. Bolted rap anchor at the top.

I'd recommend having a purple C3 for the last 12' to the first bolt. The climbing around the 2nd bolt was definitely hard! Sep 11, 2016
Hey gang,

I left a pair of Muiras at the base of, either, this climb or the sport route, Enter the Dragon. If anyone finds them, please let me know!
Thanks

Ok....this was f-ing hard at the top. I'd give it a 11+. Super fun crack, then burly stemming through the upper section. The biggest cam you need is 0.5 camalots. The crack just gets smaller from there. Mar 9, 2015

As noted by Gargano above, this route has a one-bolt rap ring anchor. There are currently aluminum biners on the anchor bolt and last bolt, which people are lowering off of. May 9, 2013

Climbed this route 5/2/12. One of the anchor bolts is missing, went to clip in to it and it pulled on me. May 5, 2012

I thought this route was pretty good, a little scary going out on the face, but good holds...if you find them. Or, if you can layback blue and black aliens, then you are good to go also. Jun 15, 2011
