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.
The Moki steps which the areas former residents carved into the sweeping walls are especially appealing to climbers. A brilliant protective measure to avoid attack, could this be an example of an early Aid ascent? Impressive engineering and very powerful to view up close and in person.
As you explore, please be respectful of the peckings,petroglyphs,ruins,and artifacts that depict the history of this sweet spot.
Please leave no trace, and if needed pick up after the stupid and ignorant.
Expect typical desert talus cone approaches for the climbs.
