Raptor Closure Several Routes!
“A message from WY Game & Fish, the Shoshone National Forest, and WyoClimbers: A pair of raptors are nesting at the Cowboy Poetry wall. Please avoid climbing the following routes between June 25th and July 31st, 2020: "Buffalo Solider (+”Charlie Drew that Spinnin’ Bull”), “Cowboys Don’t Shoot Straight”, “Ambush in the Night” (+”Riata Man”), and also the roof extensions of “Cowboy Poetry” and “Boy”. Raptors will actively defend nesting areas. Disturbance could result in abandonment of their nest resulting in egg or chick loss and increase the chance of predation. This is not only a climber safety issue but an important measure to protect the nesting birds. Thanks for your cooperation!”
