Park Wildlife Specialist Gavin Emmons announced today that most of the climbing restrictions have been lifted with the exception of parts of Machete Ridge that will remain closed for Condor protection.
This means that all routes on the Balconies are now open as well as other outlying areas that had been closed.
Please remember that Coronavirus restrictions are still in place and that summer brings temperatures over 100 degrees regularly at the Park. If you do decide to go climbing be prepared.
