Oh no....this is super sad news, both for the area and the climbing itself. Please keep posting as you find out more information (including info concerning Eagle Canyon). Wow, so depressing.
Thanks Scott. Jul 9, 2012

Update: I went out here yesterday and discovered that most of, if not all of these routes were affected greatly by the Los Conchas fire in 2011. Bolts and rock layers have been cooked by firestorms with ambient air temps greater than 2500 degrees Fahrenheit. There are no live trees left, no shade, crumbling rock, burned hardware, and is pretty much a wasteland now. It was quite sobering to find this. This marks the end of an era, and a wonderful area that this was. I am thankful to have gotten to climb the years that I have there. I did not make it to Eagle Canyon to check it, but I am assuming the worst as well. The Dihedrals were cooked too. Vista Point seems to be ok, but could use some anchor upgrades as there are no trees to anchor with. I guess you could drive a car to the rim and use it for an anchor. I will head out again at some point to verify the status of the crags I did not make it to, and will post. Jul 9, 2012
