Due to nesting peregrine falcons, the section of the Trapps cliff between and including the routes Wisecrack (5.6) and Scary Area (5.12) is temporarily closed to rock climbing. This closure is in effect as of March 19, 2018.

-Do not use ascent trails or rappel routes that access this area.
-Do not use the trails at the top of the cliff in the closure area.
-Do not use the section of the climber’s trail at the base of the cliff between these routes.
-Please refrain from excessive noise making while in the vicinity of this closure.

Thank you for helping to protect the Peregrines!

When I was there this weekend, they said they've seen/had babies! Which I'm told is progress, but the closure remains until the babies take off or something. I heard it could be another month or maybe less, but who knows? Maybe the falcons do...

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
