5.10 A4, Trad, Aid, 1800 ft, 12 pitches, Grade VI,  Avg: 4 from 1 vote
FA: Brandon Adams and Roger Putnam Mar, 2018
Utah > Zion National Park > Abraham
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.

Consult topo and overlay. Great route. Highly recommended as a modern hard aid adventure.

Roger and I had an amazing time up there on this one. Enjoy.
