Hello Mountain Project-

We wanted to pass along an update with regards to seasonal wildlife closures at Garden of the Gods. There are currently two closures in effect, both on North Gateway Rock. The first closures is for the Eastern Face (including the East ledges), which will include routes like Max's Mayhem, Snuggles/Fall Crack, etc. The second closure is for the Tower of Babel on the North end of Gateway Rock, and includes Anaconda, Ryan's Inferno, The Inferno, and Triple Exposure. The routes listed above are for reference, but may not represent all routes affected, and closures may be subject to change. We've provided a map of North gateway showing these closures.

Could we relocate the pigeons to a less popular crag?

The actual gully itself and the routes accessible from it (Above/North of Finger Ramp, for example) are open, but the East ledges which can be accessed from the top of the Gully are part of the listed closure. There will be a sign at the top of the gully which will mark this boundary.

Hello MP,

Based on new reports of nesting behavior and of raptors exhibiting signs of stress/defending their nesting sites, we are updating our closures to include Big Sky and Sand in the Vaseline (aka The Route to the Left) on the East face of Grey Rock (aka Kindergarten Rock). Other routes on the East face near the South Summit such as New Era will remain open, but we ask that climbers approach these routes from the South, and avoid the North end/approach of the East Face while the closure is in effect.
