|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.

Friction slab climbing with sloping handholds, followed by a short, fairly blank section at the fourth bolt. After the blank section is a shallow hueco contained in more featured rock.
Continue up the now lower-angled rock through the next few bolts. After the eighth bolt angle left a bit toward the chains.
Marmot Slab is the gray, slabby sandstone on the north side of the canyon across from the dramatic, orange-and-black striped, overhanging wall that contains Namaste.
Pulp Friction is located about 5 feet left (downcanyon, west) of a left-facing flake. About 75 feet left of Pulp Friction is Pins and Needles, which has tan bolt hangers. Note that Sand Surfin' is also located immediately left of a left-facing flake there is a small roof on the flake to the right of Sand Surfing and Pulp Friction is downcanyon from Sand Surfing.

|Assuming I was on the correct climb,a 70m rope was not enough to get back to ground. Note, the climb was ~40m with only 8 bolts, seemed a bit ran out.|

Well protected for a slab route, especially during the crux.
I wish the entire climb was like the blank section at bolt 4! Didn't have time to try pins and needles between climbs at Namaste, but this one was still good!
