New Trapps Route Closure for Peregrine Falcons – July 2012

New announcement from the Mohonk Preserve as of July 1st, 2012!
Falcons have been aggressively defending an area that may be a secondary nesting sight.


Due to nesting peregrine falcons, the section of the Trapps cliff between, and including the routes Beginner’s Delight (5.3) and Pleh (5.11) is temporarily closed to rock climbing.

  • Do not use ascent trails or rappel routes that access this area.
  • Do not use the section of the cliff base climber’s trail between these routes.
  • Please refrain from excessive noise making while in the vicinity of this closure.

Thank you for your cooperation!
