***** 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.

Brain and myself did the second ascent of this line in '99. Great route, amazing exposure, lots of really rad features. Climb the leaning set of corners on the forbidden wall to the right of Wages of Sin.


on the forbidden Wall to the right of Wages of Sin. Climb the right facing corners that lean to the top of the wall
