On August 7th, The park at Horse Pens 40, a prime bouldering area in Alabama, was officially closed. The closure stems from issues unrelated to climbing. There are interested parties who are trying to lease the park and continue business as usual (climbing included), but nothing has been finalized.

The park is now for sale for $978,000. Even so, park developer Adam Henry, said he thinks the closure is not long-term and that the park should re-open by fall. The Access Fund is working with its Regional Coordinators and the Southeastern Climbers Coalition to restore access as soon as possible. Check Southeastern Climbers Coalition and Southern Slopers for updates on the park's status and information on how you can help.
