Falcons Stawamus Chief Park

Falcons, Stawamus Chief Park - Squamish BC -

In the mid 1980’s Peregrine falcons returned to nest on the southwest face of the Chief. To minimize human disturbance of the nesting falcons, climbers established a self regulated climbing closure from March 15 - July 31. Routes closed were mid elevation routes from Negro Lesbian to Freeway. At this time it appears the closure is effective as the falcons have continued to return and nest successfully. BC Parks supports and will enforce this closure.

The traditional closed area will be enforced each spring beginning March 15. BC Parks will compile information from rock climbers, other observers and volunteers and its own observations and identify the falcons nesting location and high activity areas. In late May/early June, BC Parks will review the closure to see if it should be modified in size or location. All closures due to falcon protection will end on July 31, unless there is new information that would support a closure extension.
