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.

Climb the Obvious cleft located on the right side of the Watchman when viewing from town. Locate a steep chimney/ crack system and climb it straight up for 4 pitches passing a 5.10 "SQUEEZER" on P2 and through a 5.11 or C1 roof on P3. and a scary chockstone on P4. From the top of P4 trend up and right into the obvious cleft/ chimney system and to the top of the Watchman in 4 or 5 pitches. Lower part of the route is good but the upper part is a Gutter. But a very unique feature can be discovered near the top! Guess I could say adventurous route but not all that recommended.
