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


Climbs the first 2-1/2 pitches of Swoop Gimp, then branches off left via a bolt ladder that leads to a spectacular crack system that shoots up to a big, brushy terrace at the 800' level. An exposed traverse left leads to a final strait-in crack system that is followed to the top. Descend Angles Landing trail. It's mostly aid with some good free pitches. There is some soft rock...we rate this climb as a long grade V.


Same Start as Swoop Gimp


The pin list on the topo is out dated. A recent ascent used only 5 pitons on the entire climb.

Trip Report… Jul 2, 2013
Climbed this in 2003 and found it to be pretty damn good. The top pitches are a bit of a grovel (big surprise) but there are some fine pitches on this beauty. Highly recommended for people looking for fresh adventure.We only used a handful of pins, mostly thin stuff I believe. Apr 27, 2012
