BETA PHOTO: Lost in Transit is #4

***** 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.

P1 - Starts Just left of left facing corner where Ancient Gallery starts. The pitch eventually moves into that same chimney.
P2,3 - Difficult free climbing gains the prominent right facing corner above.
P4 - Climb the excellent corner above to an OK bivy ledge(5.9).
P5-8 - Difficult nailing ascends the cracks & corners above to the top. See topo at visitors center.

The first ascent party (Steve) took a long zipper fall on pitch 7.


Right side of Twin Brother. Begin just left of Ancient Gallery. Descend by scrambling south to a pine tree. Make 2 190' rappels to the drainage between Twin Brother and East Temple. Descend this (2 raps) to the ground


9 KB, 6 LA, 2 each baby angle. Many small & Med. nuts. 3 to 4 sets of cams.
