***** 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.

To the left of Coke Explosion is the the left facing flake that starts out with slab moves to the flake clipping bolts. Start getting down to business making face moves and liebacks, when bolts end start jamming the flake to a good rest then keep going to the ledge clipping one last bolt, from the ledge its easy climbing up to the anchors.


5 bolts, single set from purple metolious to #4 camalot should be more than sufficient.
