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. Seasonal Raptor Closures Details

Description

A tricky move off the ground gains a stance below the obvious left-facing corner. This crack begins as hands but widens to OW as you get higher. Belay at a 2-bolt anchor at 100', below the roof. A second pitch traverses out below the roof to the left, passing a bolt, to another anchor, will need 2 ropes to descend if you do P2.

Location

Park for Kung-Fu Theater, but as the trail nears the cliff, angle up and left.
Look for an obvious wide crack below a prominent roof.

Protection

Nuts and cams to 5", with 2-3 4" cams.

Classic classic classic! Stuck #6 in the O.W. section... Bring you #4 game face! Apr 27, 2018
agree with @twochains, also, the pitch is about 105 feet to the anchor, it's tight with a 60m rope. Tie knots in the end of your rope if top roping. May 8, 2018
