A pair of golden eagles regularly nest on Bridge Creek Wall. When in effect, starting January 1, PLEASE DO NOT CLIMB or travel within 1/2 mile of Bridge Creek Wall. As a reference, the climb Condorphamine Addiction is just outside of this 1/2 mile buffer, and is OK to climb still. The closure extends through August 15, but there is active monitoring to determine if the seasonal closure can be lifted earlier.
In 2014, there was an active pair of peregrine falcons at Snow Creek Wall, but no official closure was put in effect due to the location of the falcons. The site will be continually monitored with changes or removal of closures updated as necessary.
For Deb's Crack areas, park at the bulletin board.
For Whutza, you should head up the trail before the small wood sign (same as Mad Meadows), while Hammerhead/Insect/Central Park start just after Whutza and near "The Fist" boulder (Hammerhead is left of the boulder).
This area used to include Playground Point. Playground now has its own section at
