Climbing Closure
The climbing routes at Otter Cliffs previously known as the Black Crack, Riptide, and Razor Crack (aka, Razor Flake) were closed on Thursday, July 17, 2008, until further notice. On the evening of July 15, a rockfall occurred in the Otter Cliffs area. At that time, several very large boulders broke free from the cliff face. Several additional boulders are still attached and remain unstable on the cliff face above what were once these climbing routes.

Park staff will continue to monitor the cliff conditions and will re-open the closed section of the Otter Cliffs area as soon as we are able to assess the integrity of the remaining rock and removes loose debris from the cliff face.
