Would anyone with experience at Moore's Wall know which areas/routes would be good to do on a cold day? It doesn't look like it'll get out of the 40's until late in the day this coming Saturday. We're interested in climbs at 5.9 and lower if that makes a difference.

Side note- are there any closures for the peregrine falcons in this area? I didn't find anything online about it, but I would hate to make the trip only to get turned away. Thanks in advance.

It's largely north-facing and still quite cold for that temp. Even if you're in the sun, the rock will still be cold as hell. Take some pads with you and go bouldering. That's as good as the trad there.

Jake, thanks for the reply. We'll probably put this trip off another month, I was really hoping to get on some of the bigger routes. We had a bad experience with frozen hands at Seneca a couple weeks ago, and are trying to avoid reliving that nightmare.

Could be a little chilly this weekend, but it has been warm lately so that's in your favor. wailing wall, washboard, scrambled eggs will all get sun. Zoo View and golden earring will be chilly. There are no falcon closures at Moore's. There used to be one for the North end, but it was discontinued a few years ago.

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
