Access Issue: Peregrine Falcons Details
This area is now a Forest Service observed Peregrin Falcon nesting site. If you see falcons please give them plenty of space, and do not climb anywhere near their nest. You’ll know all about it if they are actively nesting as they are perhaps one of the most vocal birds in these woods. Though removed from the endangered species list and considered a stable population, they remain a protected species under the Migratory Bird Treaty Act and The Forest Service has the authority to effect closures for Peregrine Falcons because they are listed on the regionally generated Sensitive Species list. This list was updated in 2012 and comes down from the Southwest Regional Office in Albuquerque with input from the Game and Fish Dept. It’s always good to remember that while these crags entertain us immensely, it is home to a wide variety of animals. Temporary closures may be effected if it is determined necessary for the protection of vulnerable chicks.
Things with splitter cracks are good but this thing would be great if it were only longer. That being said the crux climbing is a very steep thin hands splitter out a strange roof to a mantle. Fun for some.
