Raptors Nesting At Cowboy Poetry!
A voluntary closure is in effect at the Main Wall of Wild Iris from June 7 to July 31, 2021 to protect nesting raptors. Please avoid climbing the following routes: Buffalo Soldier (+Charlie Drew That Spinnin’ Bull), Cowboys Don’t Shoot Straight, Ambush in the Night (+Riata Man), and roof extensions of Cowboy Poetry (12b) and Boy (13a). Raptors will actively defend nesting areas. Disturbance could result in nest abandonment, egg or chick loss, and increase the chance of predation. This is not only a climber safety issue but an important measure to protect nesting raptors. Please report any wildlife conflicts to the Forest Service @ 307-335-2157. Thank you.
