|***** 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 2nd pitch requires thin gear, you may want doubles of finger size and smaller.|

Jer Alz hope this helps.
1. It's a trad route.
2. It states the protection needed for the route "Double set of cams to gold Camalot with singles in the smallest sizes"
3. It also states " A few bolts protect the top of this pitch and it's 130 feet to the upper anchors",
4. It's a trad route.
