***** 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.

Climb a nice left facing corner off a pedestal to a large flake and through a small roof to the anchors.

Great climb, if a bit creepy. I pulled up to the flake proper. It had a rather "plastic" character; I gave it a knock, it sounded like a drum and I swear the whole thing flexed when I pulled. It's thin. Real thin.
