I haven’t done any rock climbing in Zion but it is wasn’t surprising to see climbing routes such as Angels Landing and Cable Mountain on the list.

From KSL:

The routes were closed Wednesday and will remain closed while park wildlife biologists determine the birds’ nesting locations. Cliffs that don’t shelter nest sites this year will reopen some time by late April or early May. Cliffs with nests will remain closed until the falcon chicks fledge, which usually happens in late July.
