Table Rock Access Issues

Just a reminder about Table Rock Access Issues: The dirt road is currently closed. Please access using marked public trails and public parking. Some of these trails may be impacted by weather. Make sure to check Ridge to Rivers for trail conditions. The BCA is actively engaged in this process and has a board member advocating for climbers on the Table Rock Advisory Committee.

2020 Crag Clean Up Information

Black Cliffs Sign Up – here

Due to COVID-19, we’ll be doing our annual crag clean ups a little different than usual. We are still hosting the Black Cliffs clean up in-person and will be having a “virtual” crag clean for those that aren’t able to attend the in person event.

Black Cliffs Event – November 14th, 2020
If you are interested in attending, please sign up here. We will be sending out a follow up email once shifts have been figured out with information about where to meet, what to bring, and who is the project lead. Attendance to the in-person event will enter you into a drawing; winners will be announced virtually after the event.

Virtual Instagram Crag Clean Up – November 1-14th, 2020
Can’t attend the in-person event? By posting a picture yourself cleaning up a local crag on Instagram and tagging the BCA instagram account (@boiseclimbersalliance) and #bcacragcleanup2020, you’ll be entered in a drawing where winners will be announced after November 14th.

Thanks to our sponsors and looking forward to seeing how clean we can get our crags!

Closure Update: 5/6/2020

There are new closures, as well as all others which remain in effect:
CAR BODY -*Open* Closure has been lifted due to nesting failure.
HIGHWAY FACE – Closed
DEAD COW – Closed *New*
FACE CANYON – Closed
SCARY CANYON – Closed

Please protect our access by respecting these closures, talking with those who do not, and notifying BCA when you see something. We are monitoring the birds on a weekly basis and will continue to keep you updated. Remember, disturbance of young birds can impact nest success so it’s your compliance that helps gives these birds space they need and keep our crags open.

Please enjoy this great picture of some of our new friends at the Cliffs!

Thank you, BCA

Closure Update: 5/2/2020

Due to sensitivity of nesting owls and violations of buffer zones, we have extended the area of protection in Car Body. After consulting with two raptor biologists, all of East Car Body is now closed to all to climbing and any other form of recreation.  The closure extends all the way to The Throb in West Car Body. Please protect our access by not violating these closures and talking with those who do.  

All other closures remain in effect:
HIGHWAY FACE
FACE CANYON
SCARY CANYONEAST CAR BODY

The East Car Body closures includes the trails, please do NOT use the trails on the East Side in Car Body. This is a critical time for the birds and climbers. We are monitoring the birds on a weekly basis and disturbance of young will result in loss of young birds and climbing.

Thank you,
BCA
