|2016 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.

A very nice overlooked climb in zion.
Step off the pillar and make a hard first move. Following the bolts to the crack, either place a cam, in the hard to see crack or run it to the next bolt. after 3 more bolts enjoy fun finger and hand crack for 60 more feet to a 2 bolt anchor
Side note: Earlier this season a friend and I reto fitted the missing hangers and updated the gear on this. All Bolts have modern hangers and are at least 3/8in bolts. 3 bolts are now 1/2"ers, But the rest should be updated sometime soon, seeing how the 3/8 bolts are the originals.
Climb/Scramble/Solo the first pitch of Space shot and go to the left of the start for the 2nd pitch
