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 

A cool summit located right near the Wildcat Trailhead on the Kolob Terrace side of Zion.

Getting There 

Approaching Zion from Highway 9 from Laverkin you will pass through the tiny town of Virgin. Look for a lefthand(north) turn right in town onto "Kolob Terrace Rd". Take this road 16 miles to the Wildcat Canyon trailhead(same as popular Subway canyoneering route). The peak will be obvious and immediately to the southwest as a giant white sandstone blob.

Northeast Face 5.5 4b 13 IV+ 11 MS 4a  Utah : Zion National Park : Pine Valley Peak
This is not listed as a "pitched out" climb as there is lots of 4th class and sections of 5th. It is a step above the 5th class sections on Lady Mountain or North Guardian Angel, though not as serious as the routes up East or West Temples. From the base of the peak on the Northeast-ish face, find the easiest path up the slabs. The first quarter of the route is just 3rd/4th class stuff that you can make as hard or as easy as you want. Soon the slabs will get a little steeper, and you will have to...[more]   Browse More Classics in Utah
