Closure Update: 1/12/2023

❌ East Car Body Canyon
❌ Nixon Head

Hello climbers! Nesting season is upon us! There is a lot of info packed into this, so please take a few moments. Respecting closures and being aware of land issues is the most important component of maintaining access to our local crag.

Regarding East Car Body

Face is currently open, and with the access trail being so close to the closures in East Car Body, please be cognizant of signs and not disturbing the area (ex: dogs and music). When accessing, veer right at the trail junction and do not disturb East Car Body.

About above the Black Cliffs

This is a critical winter wildlife area. Do not set up top ropes or access from above. This area is monitored by Fish and Game and could result in fines for you, as well as denied access to Car Body for all.

What you can do to help us

  • Please alert us if see any raptor activity and we will send volunteer raptor monitors to assess it.
  • Give nests, and these areas, space.
  • Educate your friends and share the information.
  • Climb in all the other areas, the Black Cliffs has quite a lot to offer!

With the weather and winter thaw, there has also been reports of loose rock, so be aware when climbing.

Giving nests the space they need is one of the single most important things that keeps local climbing accessible. Thank you for your cooperation in this and please help spread the word. Climb on!
