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 a lot to offer!
