Paria Point Rock Climbing
Wind, Sand, and Stars topo.
|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.

Another obscure aid climb. Good aid climbing in an awesome place. Wild free climbing at the top of the buttress. Look for a time capsul chained to anchors of pitch 5 or 6. This route was really Todd and Troy's route, they had the first two or three fixed and I was lucky enough to tag along. We had a bunch of fun. Beast of Burden was named for us calling Todd "Keith Richards" whilst on route. We did the route with two bivis and I will never forget the shadows the morning light casts on the New Ha...[more] Browse More Classics in Utah
