Chimney Rocks....

  This is actually a pretty vast area with the Chimney Rock Spire being a main attraction. The Crystal Wall is also pretty popular, with lots of nice face climbing and easy to hard grades. Chimney Rocks is in a funny kind of triangle of management. National Park and Forest Service are involved as is the Giant Sequoia National Monument. The lines seem to all intersect here.
The Forest Service handles the Peregrine Falcon Closure with a blanket shutdown of the whole area. This Closure is now in effect....4-18-13 and will last till sometime in August.
