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.

One of the more obvious routes on the wall, all the way to the right about 200 ft right of Days of no Future, yes up the big ugly flake, just blank for the first 100 feet or so. Well Ammon hooked up and to the leaning ramp, very heading pitch so beware. Great nailing, some expando, goo free climbing and the "maw" is really not bad at all. The last aid pitch is almost all hooks w/ some bolts and a ledge fall if you blow it. The final pitch I got lost in the dark and ended up in no mans land, untied from the rope (holding a small bush) and they pulled the rope back to them. Ammon relead the pitch (over to the right) and kindly dropped me a rope, thanks man. link to story
