Climber's Condor Warning
posted: March 24, 2004
You may have recently heard about some encounters climbers have been having with the new Condors at the park. You may have even had one yourself. Some erroneous information has been circulated regarding how the Park would like you to deal with this type of situation.
According to recent information coming from the condor project director, climbers should NOT "haze" (try to scare off) the condors in any way. Climbers are advised: if you are approached, simply ignore the birds until they are done checking you out.
