Per Stewart M. Green: ATTENTION!! The Colorado Springs Parks Department has CLOSED ALL CITY PARKS, including Garden of the Gods, Red Rock Canyon Open Space, and North Cheyenne Canon, to rock climbing for the upcoming Memorial Day weekend.
This is due to record rainfall totals in western Colorado Springs which as caused severe trail and parking lot damage, saturated the sandstone cliffs, and is causing parts of cliffs to break off.
The parks will be re-evaluated on Monday to determine how the closure will last.
Please respect the closures and take care of our precious climbing areas!
FLY CAVE WALL PROBLEMS:
1. CHOSS ATTACK - definitely chossy, follow a crack and lie-back feature on the left side of the wall to a jug at 15 feet, not that good
2. TOUGH COOKIES - sit-down start at the left side of the cave, then climb up and slightly left through the main overhang to finish on a good jug at the base of the slab
3. CAVE 101 - sit-down start at the left side of the cave, then traverse the lip of the cave up and right until you reach a mossy ledge at 15 feet, very cool
