Peregrine Closings 2009
« on: March 29, 2009, 10:47:07 am »
Rumney - Peregrine Falcons have taken up residence on the Summit Cliff.  The
entire Summit Cliff (including  Flea Surgeon and  Northwest Passage ),
as well as the Asylum Cliff to climbers, left and the Monolith to
climbers, right) are temporarily closed to climbing. All other crags,
including the Main Cliff near Buffalo Road are OPEN. 

Cathedral Ledge -Peregrine Falcons have taken up residence on the northern end of
Cathedral Ledge.  Routes from climbers' right of "Cathedral Roof" to
climbers' left of "Diedre" (including "Repentence" and "Remission") are
temporarily closed to climbing. All other areas on the cliff remain
OPEN. 

Your cooperation is essential if these birds are to nest
successfully.  Peregrines are protected by both Federal and State laws.

UPDATE

Just a brief update regarding the peregrine falcons at Cathedral Ledge ...

They are nesting at the "upside-down pine tree" ledge between "Repentance" and "Remission" at the north end of the cliff.  Incubation began after 4/10 but before 4/17, so hatch is due after 5/15 but before 5/22.

A temporary climbing closure has been posted right of "Cathedral Roof" and left of "Diedre."
