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

This climb is listed in a guide book my friend was using, but it isn't hard to find otherwise. It's a straightforward hand/small hand crack that looks like it gets climbed fairly often. It is short; don't fall.
It is fun and good for practicing and gaining confidence before moving to longer routes. Rounds out the practice cliff's opportunities nicely.

Location

This is the last crack before the 4th class scramble to the top of the cliff on the shortest part of the wall - directly to the left of a north facing corner/overhang that is roped off as of february 2015.

Protection

cams: 0.75-3 (#2 mid route, 0.75 before the top out).
set TR or rappel off tree - can be accessed from top of cliff.
