***** 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.

Long, loose, gendarmed ridge. Dangerous climb. Very alpine. Not for the inexperienced.

Free beer for second ascent. call or email me and I will call in the credit card number. Because you will be in Utah, the state run liquor store may not stand for this, you will have to swill at the bit, they will let me do this!!! Barry Ward once offered free beer for second ascent of G-Money, but never followed through. I will!
