Anyone know if this closure is likely to be lifted before the 31st or who I can contact to find out updates?
Thx

Last year it was the 15th. If it gets lifted it will be posted here.

There are other worthy routes to do though that get you up there. Like Millenium Falcon to either the grande finale or MF upper or Black Dyke

BC parks just announced some closures today. The rock scaling is done and they were gonna reopen angels Crest, but it has peregrines nesting on p4 and 5 and is now officially closed til nesting season ends.

You may be able to climb Borderline or Sherrif's Badge routes and traverse onto Crest to finish, above the lower pitches where the nest is? Not sure.
