Funk Rock City is temporarily closed due to a small forest fire in the area. Below is the notice from Tim Eling of the Daniel Boone National Forest.
Hello Climbers,We have a wildfire in the vicinity of Funk Rock City climbing area within Clifty Wilderness. The Forest Supervisor has just issued a closure order for the area immediately around Funk Rock City (about 25 acres). The fire is burning on the cliff above the climbing area, snags are falling and crews are working in the area. The fire is small (< 5 acres) and thus the closure area is small at this time. The closure will be lifted when the area is deemed safe. Please help pass the word on this closure. Can this notice be posted on the RRGCC & Red River Climbing websites?
USFS interns will be posting flyers at various businesses (Miguels, Shell, etc…) and key trailheads.
Thank you for your cooperation.
