Topic - New Restriction - nesting birds at Bus Stop Quarry

We have been requested to avoid climbing (and from walking up to) the Upper Levels (Jenga Buttress) at Bus Stop quarry due to the prescence of a pair of nesting Ravens directly opposite and level with the butress.

The prescence of climbers disturbs the birds sufficently for them to both leave the nest for times in excess of 20 min, which is more than long enough for the eggs to chill and the chicks to die.

The restriction covers the routes Jenga, Bosch Stop Quarry, Bish Bash Bosch and also on the opposite side Hasta La Vista Babay and Race Against the Pump.

A small sign wil also be placed on the approach path.

The restriction will only last until April 30th.
