***** 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.

Hard, thin, dangerous, bottoming, puckering. This route is prone to destruction and will not last. Pitch two contains a pile of loose choss over a ledge that could break your legs(the ledge or choss or both that is...). The cracks are bottoming and were rurp-thin to begin with in spots. The bolt ladders are total shit-- eight-to-ten holes between bolts. Failing beak holes to boot.
