Park Opens Nexus/Sexus Area Early

In yet another example of how attentive the Park has been to the climbing community, the Park has opened several formations normally closed during the raptor closure season.

Areas recently removed from the closures list include:

  • North end Balconies climbs from Digger to Plexus, including Knifeblade
  • The Citadel
  • The Sponge
  • Beak Peak
  • Generation Gap
  • Gargoyle
  • The Frog (The Hand & The Thumb remain CLOSED)

Note: It is confirmed that Condors are nesting in the Resurrection Wall area and this will keep Resurrection and Western Front closed for quite a while.

For the Parks latest, detailed closures listing check out their Advisory Handout

Critical Update Information

While the Park has reopened some routes on the Balconies, please be aware that there are active nesting areas in the Balconies West and Crowley Towers area. Please do NOT approach or descend via trails that pass by or through these areas. Either rappel your route or descend the 165' rappel from the top of Hook and Drill.
