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 

Jam and stem up a short crack and top out at a yucca next to the rap anchor. This is a great first lead with good stances and plenty of pro possibilities.

Location 

This is located on a ledge 10 feet left of Salty Dog Arete. We climbed the first pitch of Ghetto Booty (5.8 wandering crack in the middle of the face) to access the ledge. This route is 5 feet right from the bolted anchor for pitch 1 of Ghetto Booty.
