The state Department of Environmental Conservation has confirmed that peregrine falcons are nesting on The Nose at Poke-O-Moonshine, one of the most popular rock-climbing cliffs in the Adirondacks. As a result, fifty-four climbing routes will be closed until further notice. The good news is that the 200-plus other routes at Poke-O will reopen starting tomorrow, April 28. All routes at Moss Cliff in Wilmington Notch and the Upper and Lower Washbowl Cliffs near Chapel Pond will remain closed for the time being.
