Peregrine Closings 2017
« on: May 27, 2017, 06:40:38 am »
I received the following email Friday evening. It appears that there are rather minimal closings. Please respect these.

Thanks

Hi Al -

Temporary access restrictions are posted at the following five New Hampshire cliff sites in 2017:
 
Eagle Cliff (south end of mountain) in Franconia, NH
Holts Ledge in Lyme, NH
Painted Walls in Albany, NH
Rumney Rocks (Summit Cliff and nearby) in Rumney, NH
Woodchuck Ledge (central section of cliff) in Albany, NH
 
Peregrines are present at a number of additional cliffs where no closures have been posted because recreational use is minimal. Climbers are advised to alter plans, and report the incident, if you encounter aggressive falcons during a climb at any NH site.
 
All areas will be reopened by August 1.

There seems to be some confusion about it, but Eagle Cliff in Franconia Notch is posted for Falcon nesting as it usually is. Although the posting seems to only be for one side of the cliff, it should be for the whole cliff, as it has always been up there! There are lots of other places to climb, so please be respectful and let's protect these incredible birds.
