  • Tom Higgins Shares His Recollections Of A Classic

    We selected the streak we did climb because a side view suggested it might not be as steep at the top as other lines we examined, but the view from underneath still shocked us so much we just stopped looking and thinking about what was up there.

2004 Closures Update

The following information comes straight from the Park Service:

Prairie falcons are incubating their eggs now, and raptor advisories have been updated. Things look a little different from last year. Advisories on all Gargoyle areas and Generation Gap Pinnacle areas are now lifted.

There are active nests at the Frog/Hand and Teapot Dome though, so those areas are now going to be under advisory for the rest of the season. We had stopped listing the frog and hand because there hadn't been any activity there for a while, but it looks like it's back in favor, so look for it on lists in the future. Sorry to add new areas - usually we only lift advisories in April.

More information to come later.

See FOP Closures List.
