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.

Description 

Reggaetone is an excellent single pitch route sporting a range of climbing movement on a steep wall with quality rock. Awesome climbing and great protection.

Start with hands and fingers in a broken crack system on the left wall of a large right-facing dihedral. Move into a thin, reachy crux. Cop a rest and finish up with splitter tight hands in a flare. Pitch ends with a fixed anchor in an alcove.

Location 

The route is located in a prominent right-facing corner/dihedral to the left of the second tunnel tunnel window.

Park at the second to last turnout before the Zion-Mt. Caramel Tunnel. Follow a trail that leads through a wash to an area with large house-sized boulders. Follow the wash near these boulders towards the second tunnel window.

Once at the wall, move left to find the corner with Reggaetone.

Reggaetone ascends the broken crack system in the left wall.

High quality rock climbing with a short crux. We brought a 60m rope and would have loved the 70m to belay from the ground. It would have been nice to have a few more .75BD C4s or similar size. I brought 2, and could have used more in the upper flared thin hands section below the anchors.
