Just a heads up to anyone climbing in Zion between March and July 2017. NPS works to protect the wildlife, and every year it closes different areas to protect nesting of Peregrine Falcons, among others. Once birds leave the nest, they reopen the area. Some areas may reopen sooner once biologists determine actual nesting locations.
Affected areas Angels Landing Cable Mountain The Great White Throne (beyond single and double-pitched climbs) Mt. Isaac (in Court of the Patriarchs) The Sentinel Mountain of the Sun North Twin Brother Tunnel Wall The East Temple Mount Spry The Streaked Wall Mount Kinesava Middle Fork of Taylor Creek
