As of July 14th, 2017 the Forest Service has lifted the closure order for all NC cliffs. Please be aware the adults and newly fledged chicks may be around the nest sites and may fly or dive at climbers. Enjoy, and thanks for your help in respecting the closures. Note that the local forests just received these notices as well, so you may still see closure signs until they get a chance to remove them, but the order has been lifted and the areas are open.
