Reason: Nesting Birds
Update (05/05/10) - peregrine are nesting on Cannon Hole Buttress, please avoid routes on this buttress until 30th June. It may be possible to climb on Henhole Wall without disturbing the birds - if you climb on this area and the birds become agitated, please retreat.
|Walked to crag with intention to climb however Peregrine falcones visibly nesting on crags so decided to head back to car. Wouldn't recommend a visit until after the breading season.|
