From the Park Service website

"Six areas of the park are closed to rock climbing due to their proximity to sensitive resources or private property. They include:...the "Pictograph Boulder" at the base of Queen Mountain, and within 50 feet of "Chicken Wing," "Heavy Metal," and "Hell Flake" in the "Indian Wave" boulder area..." Mar 31, 2009

A new sign is up for the Indian cave, but it's in front of the slab boulder just before the entrance to the cave. Says No climbing! The superintendants compendium says nothing of these slab problems being closed. Ranger Mars and Ranger Reagan said nothing of these problems being closed either? What gives?? Jun 3, 2010

Robert - read the bold type again, especially the "within 50'..." part. Jun 3, 2010

I understand the law, and I appreciate the Park service's loose interpretation of it. I recently walked that area with several rangers that monitor bouldering, and they said some stuff... none of which involved those problems. Jun 4, 2010

There is Native American rock art on this boulder exactly where a boulderer would smear right starting the Chicken Wing problem. The Park Superintendent pointed it out to me and the recent boot black and chalk.

Please do not climb on or near this rock. Jun 18, 2010
