|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 tricky move off the ground gains a stance below the obvious left-facing corner. This crack begins as hands but widens to OW as you get higher. Belay at a 2-bolt anchor at 95' below the roof. A second pitch traverses out below the roof to the left, passing a bolt, to another anchor, will need 2 ropes to descend.
Park for Kung-Fu Theater, but as the trail nears the cliff, angle up and left.
Look for an obvious wide crack below a prominent roof.
Nuts and cams to 5", with 2-3 4" cams.
