|I haven't climbed many of these routes, so if anyone has any further information regarding them, feel free to let me know or post something.|

this area may very well be closed to climbing now.
but if not, some of the shittier anchor bolts have been replaced i believe.

|What makes you think its closed? I have gone night climbing there a few times with friends in the past. Actually a lot of fun. It would be fun to bolt some routes, get a Ross-park type area going for beginning leads.|

|Still open to climbing but there is a 3 dollar entrance fee to the reservoir. The routes are very short and a couple of them (the ones by Yellow Jacket crack) sometimes have quite a few yellow jackets hanging out in key holds but the setting is spectacular and the climbing is fun.|

Had a great morning climbing until the deputy sheriff came and told us that we were climbing on private property. When I asked him who owned the land, he withdrew his private property comment and said that it was BLM land. There are "No Trespassing" signs posted on the fence above this area. The fence only goes so far and we walked right around the fence following the trail. We told the deputy that the signage was confusing and that there were blogs and websites citing this area as open to climbing. When we asked him why they closed it down, he said that too many people got hurt. I asked him what the injuries were from, and it sounds like too many stupid kids come out here to go cliff jumping. Instead of posting signs for no cliff jumping they just posted signs for no trespassing. It's totally stupid. Sheriff was cool about everything. Checked out our DLs, then let us go.
Anyway, be aware that the Sheriff's dept. patrols this area regularly and they are trying to stop climbers and cliff jumpers.
It's a shame. We had a great time climbing this morning. The routes aren't terribly difficult but have some fun cracks and challenging in places depending on the routes/moves you try.
