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.

Description 

On the right side of the west face there is a large chalked horizontal with an edge angling up and to the left about 5 feet above. Start with both hands on a good vertical crack/pocket to the right and below the horizontal hands. Move left to the awesome hands, and then head up. A possibly height dependent move takes you to the top, where semi-decent holds make for an OK top-out. I'm 5'8" and it felt V2, but I can imagine taller people having a much easier time.
