Found a grey Black Diamond ATC today at the base of Whitehorse. It was below the start for beginners and Cormier Magnuss. Dropped it at IME if you want it back.

Events & Announcements / Restore Rumney!
« Last post by White_Mountain_Rambler on May 07, 2019, 02:24:04 PM »
Help ensure the Access Fund, Rumney Climbers' Association, and the US Forest Service can follow through with plans to perform critical trail stewardship work at some of the oldest and most popular cliffs at Rumney.

Plans are underway to bring the Access Fund-Jeep Conservation Teams and an AmeriCorp crew to Rumney starting in July of this year to address long standing trail infrastructure improvement needs identified by the USFS in 2009, but we need to secure funding to make these goals a reality. To that end, Access Fund and RCA are working together to apply for numerous grants to support this critical work, but we need the support of the broader community to reach our funding goal of $155,000,

To learn more about the project head to: https://www.accessfund.org/take-action/campaigns/restore-rumney

Please contact mike@accessfund.org if you have any questions.

thanks for the heads up. I climbed P 1 & 2 on Monday and noticed that a few of the nuts on the bolts on P 2 were loose as well. my second, Jeff Lea, tightened them down.

Events & Announcements / FROM CHRIS MARTIN OF NH AUDUBON:
« Last post by Admin Al on May 03, 2019, 12:36:13 PM »
On (4/22/2019 I visually confirmed (see 1st photo) that the peregrines are incubating eggs on the upper half of Rumney’s Main Cliff, on a wide dusty ledge created by the 2010 rockfall and above the ledge with the live birch tree sapling (see 2nd photo), and located considerably to the left of ‘Rock Du Jours.’  This is first time in 6 years they have not used the Summit Cliff area, and will require 100% climber cooperation if they are to be successful this breeding season.
 
Regarding this year’s seasonal closure, I want to try an unusual approach.  I have posted signs at the bottom of the Main Cliff that read:  FALCON NEST ON MAIN CLIFF.  1st pitches OPEN.  DO NOT CLIMB TOP ½ OF CLIFF.  In other words, only the top half of the Main Cliff is closed.
 
This morning with 2 parties climbing routes on the lower half of the cliff, the peregrines completed a prey transfer and incubation exchange without protest and seemed to ignore the climbers.
 
Previously posted areas near Summit Cliff, which were posted on 4/13/2019 in anticipation of incubation there, will be re-opened later this week.
 
Contact me with questions.  Please share the Main Cliff update with your contacts.  Thanks to Lee Hansche for passing along a report of peregrine dive-bombing climber high up on cliff late last week.
