    Attention Ice Climbers: We need your help! Sometime between 3 and 6 February 2021, a notice was posted at the trailhead of 18-Mile Creek County Park stating, “Stay Off Waterfalls Absolutely No Climbing”.

    Please join the Buffalo Climbing Coalition on February 12th at 8:30PM via Zoom while we discuss and formulate a plan to address this access issue. The Buffalo Climbing Coalition would like to thank CRG Buffalo for allowing us to host this meet out of their facility.

    Please find the meeting details at http://www.buffaloclimbing.com/

    How did the meeting go? Did you ever find out who or what is behind this sudden closure?

    (I probably will not ever climb there, but I want to understand these closure issues. Thanks.)

    Hi Tom,

    There was an image of someone climbing in the park on a local new channel's facebook page, which was seen by someone very high up in local government who got in contact with the parks department, which lead to the closure. We are currently working on a response, with assistance from the Access Fund, and will hopefully be speaking to the parks commissioner very soon regarding the closure.
