Peregrine Falcon Nesting - Temporary and Partial Closure Details

Update (August, 2015): The cliffs are now open. The closure has been lifted.
Updated (late June): The ABC ramps are now included in the closure. Balcony Jr. also has a nest, which may result in an expanded closure listing.

The National Park Service has instituted a temporary and partial closure of Maryland Heights. All climbing routes on the Sign Wall and The Gully are closed to protect nesting Peregrine Falcons. See the NPS page or visit the Mid Atlantic Climbers re-post on this issue.
