Chaos Canyon Debris Slide Area Closure
Areas West of Lake Haiyaha Remain Closed
Chaos Canyon is a popular area for bouldering. On June 28, 2022, a large rockslide event occurred on the south slope of Hallett Peak, resulting in sliding rock falling into Upper Chaos Canyon. Since this day, the area remains very active and numerous other smaller slides have occurred. All areas in Chaos Canyon to the west of Lake Haiyaha remain closed to all users. Entering the closure area is prohibited. There is no known time on when this closure will be lifted as the area of the rockslide continues to be highly unstable.
The hiking trail to Lake Haiyaha, Lake Haiyaha itself, and hiking trails on the north side of Hallett Peak remain open. The bouldering area in lower Chaos Canyon, on the north and east shore of the Lake Haiyaha, remains open.
