Drilled Pocket Boulder Rock Climbing
Drilled pocket boulder
|***** 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.

Entering Zion from the south entrance, this boulder sits on the left of the road after the campgrounds entrances (about 0.4 miles from the entrance). The face seen from the road is mostly slab, with some easy warm-ups on the right side (as seen from the road). The south face has a crack running up it, as well as a number of drilled pockets (hence the name). The back side also offers a few lines.
Down-climb the north west corner with the help of a tree. Problems are listed starting from the down-climb tree on the north wast corner, and looping around the south face to the north east corner last.
0.4 miles from the south entrance of the park, on the left.
