A reminder about crags that are closed as of Jan 1, reopening 2 weeks after young fledge (typically open July 1):
- Acker Rock
- Rabbit Ears
- Terra Nova
We are working towards a more adaptive, less constricting raptor closure policy. Greg Orton has created a working document, Outdoor Recreation & Raptors: A Guide to Adaptive Management, which was featured in a July 2018 article in Outside Magazine, “Raptor Closures Are Evolving, Thanks to Climbers.”
These crags may open earlier, depending on authoritative observations of nesting sites.
