The closure is: The cliffs at Mount Minsi from Point of Gap parking lot to Arrow Island parking lot, from the west shoulder of Route 611 to the top of the ridge, in the Pennsylvania District. These areas will be closed to rock climbing and hiking through approximately early August to prevent human disturbance to nesting peregrine falcons.
Official designated trails are not affected by this closure, meaning hikers can still use Arrow Island Trail and the Appalachian Trail.
Pitch 2: Follow the obvious line straight up, passing three small roofs on the way. Use long slings to avoid rope drag as this pitch is 120 feet. Rope management is critical here. There is a roof with a crack that is known to jam ropes for both leader and follower. At the top of the climb there is a huge roof that you skirt underneath to the left and finish on a dirty, loose ledge with a good tree (Same as Heroine Hypnosis).
Two 60M ropes will take you to the bottom.
