Access Issue: Road Work in Kolob Canyon Details
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.

Start a pitch length to the right of an obvious looking gulley system seen up high on the wall. Climb a left leaning rounded crack system to a ledge. Rappel off bolts to the left into the main system.
Varied good climbing up the system including OW and handcracks. Anchors were set for rappelling.
There were very old pitons found on only the first pitch, a route may have continued up from the right side of the ledge at the end of pitch 1-2, but there is potential for one if not.


North face of Tukapit (I believe). Hike into the canyon looking at the North facing walls. Spot a wide looking gully/chimney system up high. Start a pitch length to the right of this system.

You'll want a few big cams as you can see by the picture. But, it was too wide for any at the top part of that wide crack so I ran it out to the hand size crack. It was pretty much just a mix of sizes otherwise. We set 1 bolt for some rappels, I think Matt may have gone back and added another to some. Yeah, might be just enough info to get someone with less experience into trouble, so maybe it should just be deleted... Nov 2, 2017
