Access Issue: Manitou River Ice climbs closed
Until further notice, ice climbing along the Manitou River is closed. The MCA, Access Fund, State Parks, local conservation officers, and the DNR are working together to determine the best path forward. Accessing the river from the highway requires crossing private land and may constitute criminal trespass. The land owners have demonstrated very clearly their intent to keep people off their land with signage and fencing. It will be important for us as a climbing community to respect their wishes. We wish to work with the land owners to regain access. For questions and concerns, please contact Lucas Kramer at email@example.com.
