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

Hong Kong Phooey is the sport climb on the slab left of Inner Chi and Japanimation. It comprises thin edging at a consistent grade, to a large hueco near the top, with the last move stepping left to a bolted anchor (shared with a 5.9 crack climb to its left- "Miagi").

The holds feel a little flakey, which is probably normal for newer face climbs in Zion.

Protection

6 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor
