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

This fun route is a great way to finish up a day of cragging. It sees less action than the routes around the corner.

The first pitch is varied and ends at a bolted rap station on the edge of a brushy terrace.

The second pitch climbs the beautiful open book above. Mostly hands with some variety including a fist/OW section. It ends at a bolted rap station.

Rap the route with two 60m ropes or one 70m.

Location

From the paved pullout just up canyon from Big Bend follow a faint trail up to the cliff. The second pitch dihedral is a good landmark.

Protection

Doubles to #1 C4, at least four each of #2 and #3, one #4.
