|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.

Technically may be the hardest route on the wall. Severly committing, hard direct start, big runouts... Whilst climbing Good Friday the 13th, one could potentially rip the whole pitch! Woah! To top it all off, after having fried your brain, you have to do some mandatory 5.9 climbing at the top of the wall!

As per original Mugs topo "come armed for bear"

Taniguchi Ryuji aka Tony and Go Hamada of Japan climbed this route in '94 March. Natural line, hard thin crack and a great route. Very GD western.
