BETA PHOTO: 1st pitch (rap tree at top)
|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.

1st pitch of fun hand crack and stemming through a wedge up to a tree. It looks like there is a second pitch of maybe thin hands. Don't know what's up there
Left of freebird, which is left of Box Elder Jam, the obvious high dihedral with bolts at the top.
Descent: We rapped off the tree (which is large, solid, and slung with new stuff).
Mostly hand size. Extra 2's / 3's depending on your comfort level. a red metolius or maybe bd 0.5 is nice for the top.
