I read somewhere that Angels Landing has raptor closures in March. Didn't pay much attention because I was planning on heading out in February. Well, that got pushed back. Any idea the validity in this? Was the guide just jiving my turkey? Will I see a T Rex as well?

They always have had raptor closings at various locales. Depends on where nests are located.
In reply to:
Route Closures
Some rock formations and routes are closed to climbing from March 1 to mid-July each year to protect nesting peregrine falcons. Some areas that are routinely closed include the Great White Throne, Cable Mountain, Court of the Patriarchs, and the Streaked Wall. Check below or at Visitor Centers for current closures.

CURRENT CLIFF CLOSURES (Check often: list of closed cliffs updated regularly)
There are no climbing closures at this time

That took 10 seconds if you check the parks website.
Or call the park.

Can't get ahold of park, and I was hoping to find out a few days in advance of closures, I'm sure there are none TODAY :D
