The order is effective until December 31, 2022 or until rescinded earlier. Before you climb in any of the Taos areas, you are encouraged to verify the land management status of the particular area to ensure it is not within the closure order area.
Access Issue for Areas in BLM Taos Field Office Lands
Per the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Taos Field Office's (blm.gov/office/taos-field-o…) 2012 Taos Resource Management Plan (RMP) (bit.ly/2Kab3HO), "Installation of new rock climbing routes or hardware will require pre-approval by the BLM." The RMP is the document that guides all the BLM management in a given field office. Climbers are asked to respect this guidance and not install new bolts or fixed hardware on Taos Field Office BLM land without pre-approval from the BLM. NM CRAG (nmcrag.org/) is currently working with the BLM Taos Field Office to establish specific guidance for new route development in the district and they hope to have a formal process in the near future.
However, if you get caught on Maverick, you get fined a larger sum and/or arrested.
