So it's okay to climb Much=Shitty ridge in a Gibbon's suit?

Hey everyone -

A new update: all routes on Machete Ridge are now open again, and there are no closures or advisories in effect there.

I'm guessing that does not bode well for the breeding effort by the condor pair?

Correct - the condor nest effort failed. The nesting pair has already successfully fledged 2 young birds from the site in past years, so they will likely try again in a coming year.

Hey Everyone -

I'll be out of the park (on family leave) for several days, but wanted to pass on that all climbing advisories and closures are lifted for the rest of the year. Advisory signs have been removed from climbing areas, but it may take me a bit more time to update the bulletin board posters. As always thanks for your support!

Thanks again for your tireless dedication and your careful research.
I especially appreciate the specific listings you've put together in recent years.

Heads up, gang - the climbing advisories are in effect as of today, January 21st, 2020. I tried to be pretty specific about formations affected by the advisories, but let me know if you have questions. Note that if there are California condor pairs that nest on certain formations, there may be closures going into effect as well.

Thanks for your support!

Thanks Gavin!  I like that you seperated the area North of Resurrection.  Now I can go do some laps on O Henry (among other things)

Yeah, I hear you Noal - as soon as the weather starts drying out a bit (or a lot) more...

Heads up, gang - the park has instituted two climbing closures related to active condor nests at the park, at and around Teapot Dome, and just now at Machete Ridge. The Machete closure is partial as in past years and applies to the same routes as in past years, including the first 5 pitches of Old Original.

We saw that one coming.
I'll make sure to have Kat spread the word at Pac Edge.

 PS; Please name the next baby condor after JC, he is practically family, not only in appearance and characteristics but most importantly in time spent. If the condors start to go vegan, you will know why.

Had a feeling this one was coming - which is why I took everyone on it Thursday.  Glad I was able to get them on it before the closure.  I'll make sure to spread the word at the gym.

Clink, I did name a Mud falcon after him.

Sadly, it only made 1 flight.
