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.

Climb pockets and edges past the first couple of bolts. Find gear placements between runnouts. You'll encounter a right leaning crack that you'll pull past in order to get to the next face with two more bolts.
This is located on the ledge 15 feet up and left from Salty Dog Arete. We accessed the ledge by climbing the first pitch of Ghetto Booty. Once on the ledge this bolted face is on the left half of the ledge, just left of the anchor for Ghetto Booty.
