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 

This is a west facing wall located below Meridian Tower. It is located above Oak Creek.

Getting There 

Park at the Zion Human History Museum and walk the paved road behind it through a residential area and past the Maintenance area. Continue on a dirt road and at the second stream crossing leave the road and begin trending right up the hillside and through an obvious break in the cliff band. Once through the cliff band continue up the ridge line until you reach the toe of the buttress. Traverse left 300 feet to get to the start of the Omen.
