10 April 2018: Closure of Grand Auditorium (effective from Feb to end Jun)

Once again, Grand Auditorium is closed for the yearly nesting season of the local peregrines. Please refrain from climbing and flying drones at this sector. Be mindful of climbing at First Cave and topping out on some climbs, e.g. Commissary Crack, since you could gain unwanted attention for climbing at Grand Auditorium mistakenly by visitors from the pavilions above.
