A peregrine falcon nest has been confirmed on The Nose of the Main Face. The climbing routes described on pages 46-62 (routes #26 through #77) of Adirondack Rock - A Rock Climber's Guide and listed below are closed. All other routes will be open to climbers.
Havent been to Poke-o or the web yet this season, but ive been to shelving rock a few times over the last couple weeks. the bugs have been out, but haven't been terrible. granted, the northern dacks might be worse, so take it for what its worth...
The last two weekends have had very few bugs. This should be the height of the bug season and it not even close to what it should be. Now, it may just be that the days that I went the temperature wasn't conducive to bugs, either too cool [2 weekends ago] or too warm [last weekend].

They were absolutely awful at Wallface and Wilmington Notch last weekend. Bad enough I haven't yet made plans for this weekend. I'd rank them as the worst ever since my encounter at Wallface in 2002, when we were wearing full rain gear in 95F heat and they were biting our eyeballs... No joke.
Some people I know climbed at poko a few weeks ago and said their were none, while we were bitten up further up north. I also heard reports thatthe CP area hasn't been bad.
