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

P1 - Climb a handcrack up the right-hand side of a small tower to a bolted belay. (5.9 ~ 75')

P2 - Climb out the blocky roofs and into a steep, big-hands to fist splitter finishing at a hanging bolted belay. This is a great pitch. (5.11- ~ 100')

P3 - Climb the crack to below the roof. Traverse right into a pod, pull out of the pod and continue through a small roof to a bolted belay. (5.9+ ~ 100')

P4 - Climb out the steep offwidth on kinda gnarly rock, continue up cracks/face on rock that looses quality to the top of the formation. This is the only junky pitch on the route. (5.10 ~ 175')

Descent - Rappel the route with (2) 60m ropes.

Location

The long corner that arches right into a roof. It is the most obvious feature in the area. Starts on the right-side of a small tower.
