Nov 2015: "The land managers have asked that we stay off the climbs that go through the nest of the peregrine falcons - we have put tags on the anchors and the first bolts of the climbs. The climbs that are effected are:
Rectalphobiac Glob of Shit Double Cracks
The nest has moved each year so it might be different routes next season - we will move the tags and update you." - Matt from the Bay Area Climbers Coalition.
As of Oct 4, 2014, Summit Rock at Sanborn County Park is open seasonally to climbing on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. Around January 2015, if nesting activity is observed by park rangers, climbing may be closed or limited to permits again. The free permit system limits access to 35 people a day, subject to the results of an ongoing peregrine/climber monitoring program. Climbers can call the Parks Department reservation line at 408-355-2201, give their contact information, and receive the free permit immediately by email. Please remember to close all gates and observe all posted signs.
This information is a public crowdsourcing effort between the Access Fund,
and Mountain Project. You should confirm closures, restrictions, and/or related dates.
