The Park will close today at 4:00 pm for the season. The 2013/14 season has been amazing. Thank you to everyone who visited, supported, and volunteered this season. This incredible resource wouldn’t be possible without you.
After today, no access will be permitted below the canyon rim. As ice climbs continue to deteriorate, hazards such as falling ice and rising water levels become more prevalent. Please respect all closures. We expect to open access once again for the summer season around May 1st.
There is still plenty of time to enjoy one last backcountry climb for the season.
