It’s that time of year! Avoid climbing at the Towers of Uncertainty and the Patagonia Piles areas; Nesting falcons and hawks have been observed on these cliffs. Leave ’em be, there are 4,789 other routes in the Park to climb. Not counting boulder problems. 

Here is the Park’s release on the closure

Also in Rattlesnake Canyon there is a raptor closure for a Golden Eagle pair. Here’s the sign to look out for if you’re headed there.

Both closures are through June 15 or whenever the nests are fully abandoned.
