Glen Cliff Nesting Closure - 2012/2013
Where: Glen Cliff
When: Dec 15th, 2012 through Aug 2013 (unless active nesting does not occur) <Closure Map>
Glen Cliff is located West of I-8 above the Border Patrol checkpoint near Sunrise Highway. The crag has a dozen or so single-pitch routes which receive only occasional traffic, but is also home to a pair of raptors that nest there most years. To avoid impacting their nesting activities, the Cleveland National Forest implements a closure of the area to minimize the risk of human disturbance. Unfortunately the area is so small that none of the climbing can remain open during active nesting.
Closure details and updates will be posted here as well as on the Cleveland National Forest website.
