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

Climb a crack 20ft right of Ashtar Command. The crux comes right off the deck and protects with a 0.5 cam in a pod. Run it out to the first bolt and follow 3 more bolts until you can head left to join Ashtar. This is a fun face variation to Ashtar that may be a little heads up for the average 5.8/9 climber.

Location

Start 20ft to the right of Ashtar

Protection

single set of cams w/ extra 0.5 cams if continuing with Ashtar

the gear is really tricky in the middle and the climbing while not too difficult in this section is insecure. not worth it unless you're waiting to climb Ashtar like we were. ;) Oct 17, 2016
