With the return of spring, many climbing routes or features inside Arches National Park again have been temporarily closed to rock climbing to protect sensitive wildlife species in accordance with the authority of Title 36 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), Part 1, Section 1.5(a)(1).

The latest information on the status of temporary closures can be found on the climbing page of the park's official website.

Effective immediately, popular climbing routes on the feature known as The Three Penguins have been added to the list of temporary closures this season due to the presence of raptors displaying breeding behavior.
