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.
Follow a series of 3 well spaced bolts up the prow. Use gear for the next 20-30 feet until reaching a final bolt, then continue up to a ledge From the ledge, option to rappel (tree to the right) or continue up another 35 feet on white clean rock to a bolted anchor on a ledge.
The rappel from the tree should go with a single rope to a raised platform with a dead tree below. A 70 will def make it. The rappel from the bolt anchor requires double ropes.
Be careful of loose rocks on lower bolted section.
