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

A huge climb up the full canyon wall. Gorgeous and sustained.

P1) Steep sections with breaks in the ice and very thin ice. WI5 PDW

P2) More moderate ice to a short dirt/root top out. WI4

Location

This is the huge sheet of ice near the head of the west twin drainage. From the park boundary, drop northwest into a drainage and follow it to the climb. To get a better look, hike up to your east on the rim from the top of the canyon.
