Does anyone know if Barnum rock is in fact closed? This information seems a bit old (2013 I think). I wanted to confirm that it was open before a friend and I headed there this weekend to climb.

I know a few people who went to climb there in July. That's the only reason I think that it might be open to climbers.

I would appreciate any confirmation.

Thank you!

Hi. I posted your question to FB's Tucson Rock Climber public group and received this answer:

"Yes, this closure date is still accurate and in effect. The closure is for Mexican spotted owls.

Please continue to respect this closure."

Thank you for asking and for being sensitive to the closure and the wildlife it protects!
