Reminder about worn fixed carabiners

written by Peter Winter

We felt it would be timely to remind all climbers about the dangers of fixed carabiners that are found on anchors and fixed quick draws. The research found at Mammut is of great value:

Ravens Nesting @ Area 44 - Gully Area

for Area 44

written by Adam Connor

From Squamishclimbing.com:
"...was climbing at the Gully area of Area 44 today and there is an active Ravens nest adjacent to Climb Warp and Sweet Transendite which I found while climbing Rocky Horror. The Ravens were actively defending their nest and were pretty agitated by climbers presence. A voluntary closure of the area between the Gully area from the "Marbles" climbs to Sideshow should be respected in this area for the foreseeable future."
This crag is popular with people who are new to/learning the sport. Please pass this information along to those who climb in the area but may not be aware of these types of access-related issues.
