ANNUAL CLIMBING ROUTE CLOSURE
The Curecanti Needle and adjacent walls within one-half mile, including the top of the walls 50 feet away from the rim edge. This does not include developed trails and overlooks. Also closed are the climbing routes along the north side of U.S. Hwy. 50 one-half mile east and west of mile marker 149. The intent of the mile 149 closure is to keep people from climbing in this area; fisherman and others are still welcome to park along the highway to fish and access the river.
