Weeping Rock Rock Climbing
|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.

Pitch three has two options from the ledge, left is a 5.8 OW and right was easy stemming. Both options lead up to easier terrain with lots of loose rock until you reach a final short crux to top the route. Rap the ...[more] Browse More Classics in Utah
