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.

Minimalistic bolting and a sandy 12- optional ending to the left at the second to last bolt avoids the 13a crux.


Climbs the black streak 20 feet right of Huecos Rancheros. This is right of two adjacent routes in a wide black streak. One 80m rope gets you down.


12 bolts (Black Hangers) to chain anchor.

Are you sure that this route is right of Heuco Rancheros? Or is it right of Namaste? I didn't see any bolts between Heuco Rancheros and Dost Mitra. But I did see bolts--almost looked like an unfinished project--to the right of Namaste.

Next time I'm up there I'll take and post photos of all the routes up now. The Namaste wall, as the half route posts state, has a bit of confusion with ratings and routes. I've heard various ratings for even the extension of the half route ( which is fantastic) from a bunch of people. They all are great climbs in an awesome area and hopefully we can keep it that way and clear up some of the confusion.

It is to the right of Huecos Rancheros - about 5-10 feet though.
