|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.

Stellar route, had a blast on it this afternoon!
A couple notes:
Easily rappels with one 60m rope, though getting to the anchor on pitch 2 is a little frightening as you have to swing into it, backing up your rappel is a great idea.
Offsets protect the crux move on P1 quite well, thanks to the OP for the suggestion!
For gear I would say that doubles from .3-5" is sufficient, especially if you have a set of offset cams for P1. A #6 is optional, but can be placed. The top of P3 begs for a #3, so think about saving one of those for the top.
I highly recommend this route. Great climbing, shady, and out of the wind. Get on it!

I didn't think the gear is suspect on pitch 1 at all. From the stance before the crux I placed a bomber red alien in front of my face and a bomber red C3 right at the crux. A green c3 would have placed even easier. They were perfect.
- I'd say doubles down to yellow alien and singles below that get it done.
- Nothing smaller than #1 camalot needed after pitch 1
- All the pitches rap with 1 60m rope EXCEPT the 1st pitch! The tails came up about 4 feet short so pay attention and downclimb.
- Awesome really fun climb with sick OW and Chimneys!

|A great climb in an incredible area. Be sure to oogle at Feast of Snakes and company while at the base. G-string divas is just next door and worth doing as well.|
