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.

I believe the crux was the first or second pitch, how ever I took a fall up high and zippered the pitch.

I will attempt to add some information - although my experience on this route is somewhat dated (from a solo ascent in the late 1990's), I would call it more like A3+. Since it doesn't get much traffic, I doubt if the difficulty has changed that much. The 3rd pitch is probly the crux, although the first and second pitches have some nervy spots as well. I recall a fair amount of thinnish nailing, but not long strings of scary stuff. I enjoyed it and thought it was a good route. Jun 7, 2014
