RAPTOR CLOSURES: please be aware of seasonal raptor closures at the Cat Wall and Reservoir Wall. They occur annually from March 31st until August 31st. *Due to the federal hiring freeze in agencies such as the BLM of Monticello, no official closure for 2017 has been issued and the laws which have been put in place in previous years are not being enforced. Please, for the sake of fragile desert ecology, DO NOT CLIMB at stated walls. These raptors return to the same nesting sites every year to raise their nestlings.
There is a trail down to the basin, starting farther south (about 1 mile) and is a long hike.
(GPS notes and a bit of approach beta from baffledsloth given below)
Here are the GPS coordinates for parking and the fixed rope approach. Please walk in the small wash out to the fixed rope instead of taking a straight shot through the crypto.
