|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.

|Not as bad as it looks. The crux is NOT the offwidth. Take extra .75 camalots. A bit harder than I thought it would be as my partner told me it was 5.8. Funner than it looks.|

|Love this route...I've found it exciting every time. For me, the second OW section is the crux, which uses a wild country #5 to protect. The stemming and face holds really bring this route together, just when you think you can't go up any more you find a feature on the wall behind you.|

|I agree, this is a great climb! Lots of variety in crack size and moves.|

This route is badass. Everything from tips to OW and some crazy cool stemming too.
Bring a BD #5 and save it for the OW section before the thin hands near the top.
