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.

Description

I didn't see chalk or any info on the internet so i claim my first FA :) Took me some good 30 min and i fell multiple times on every move, so I think around V5 on the soft side. The boulder is awesome though - perfect sitstart, Left hand on a cool low pinch, right hand on the sidepull.
Stand up to a left hand decent yet somewhat far crimp, right foot up in one of the funky holes. Get the core thight and adjust right hand on a sharp crimp. Then crux - big throw to a right crimp/pinch. Then feet up (i matched but on the actual send not) and top out is ok. Video of the FA below (changed my beta on the go.... + epic knee at the end....)
