In the Bay Area Rock Climbing book by Thornburg it is noted that parts of Auburn Quarry close for Raptor Nesting.  I know there is a sign there, but can't find any dates anywhere else about this "closure" and I've talked to tons of people that have climbed in the closed areas recently.  So- is there actually a closure still?

I didn’t see any notice last time I went a few weeks ago. I am sure they post it at the trailhead and at the crag. There’s a message board in front of the memorial crag.

Last time it was announced I think it was just the twin towers area closed.

Last years notice had basically everything upward of Horseshoe Canyon closed. I just don’t wanna be the asshole that violates the closure and messes things up for everyone
