The rope is on Handy [5.9]. Climber to the left is...

***** 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.

The left-facing corner just to the right of Just Another Jam. Starts in an unprotected water runnel, then up the corner, which ranges from fingers to 6". Shares the same upper section and anchors as Just Another Jam. Not as good as its neighbor, with some questionable rock in the wide section.


1-2 sets of cams up to 5". Two-bolt anchor.
