NO CLOSURE THIS YEAR BUT BUMMER.
FROM THE RANGERS OVER AT THE WATER GAP,
Keeping a good stance w/ the Rangers. The Falcons normally nest on the top of the first pitch of Osprey.
Once again our fine feathered friends have decided not to nest on Mt.
Minsi. I am lifting the closure and will have the signs removed by the end
of the day on 5/19/06.
I have no explantation for the failed attempts. This year there was no
indication that they even selected a ledge.
If you hear of any peregrine sightings on or around the cliff face I would
appreciate hearing about it.
Thanks for your help in spreading the word about the closure. I have not
had any reports of anyone entering the closed area so your efforts at
spreading the word have helped greatly.
Thanks again and enjoy climbing!
