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. Seasonal Raptor Closures Details

Description

P1 5.11 Use the left crack start for Kung Fu Fighter, then clip a bolt, traversing left onto the steep patina face. Stiff warm up!
P2 5.9 Head left to the hanging dihedral, bolts + optional gear. Stellar!!
P3 5.11 Quality sustained patina, climb straight up, then traverse right into the crack system.
P4 5.10+ Climb the flared crack, awkward at times, then bust left onto a slab clipping bolts to gain the big ledge.

Location

Left of Kung Fu Fighter. Climbs the wide panel of dark patina, traversing left then back right to the obvious crack up high on the buttress.

Protection

14? draws and runners, 2X BD Camalots .5-#3. Rap 4 times with a 70m rope (watch the ends, first is the longest), using bolt anchors on the route plus one added rap station to straighten the line.
