Finally! The highly coveted Piqsqueak Pinnacle emerges!!!

LOL, just messin.  As if anyone would go beyond Disco. Smiley


Gavin, awesome work parsing the specific areas to maximize recreation and at the same time protect the natural resource. A model of community and government partnership, IMHO.

Thank you for the diligent work!!

Rightfoot on Pipsqueak is worth a toprope, if you're in the neighbor hood.

Glad to hear folks are excited.

Please note: I haven't yet had a chance to update bulletin boards, advisory brochures, or websites (NPS, FOP, etc.), but will try to get to those as I can in the next week or so.

For Balconies: please note that everything from Peregrine and south / west is still under advisory. I will put up a new advisory sign between Conduit and Peregrine, but in the meantime just keep in mind that the advisory sign along the Balconies Cliff Trail refers to the remaining partial advisory at Balconies... Those in the know can proceed onto Conduit, Lava Falls, or anything north of there. When lowering from any of the Balconies climbs, please rappel down and do NOT walk off the top of the first tier summit of Balconies, as this area is still under advisory. Thanks!

were you there on Jan 15th just before the closures? KC and i were up there talking to two guys that had just done St Valentine's and they rec'd Piglet - so we did that while they were on Burgundy and then we swapped. i did have fun on Piglet - my 1st 5.8 and Burgundy scared the buhgeezus outta me(my first 5.7) but i have to say that Dragonfly this past weekend was AWESOME! i nearly soiled myself...twice...

Just a heads up on closure signs. I updated the General Balconies area by taking down the main trailside sign and putting one up near Peregrine to reflect the partial closures at Balconies. I haven't taken down the sign near Scout Peak yet but rest assured all routes near Scout and Beak Peaks are open... Feel free to hike around that sign if you're looking to climb at the south end of the High Peaks. I should be able to take down the Scout Peak sign this week.

ATTENTION! New areas are now open, due to prairie falcon status:

- Machete: all climbs now open, no sensitive routes.
- Yaks Wall, North Yak, South Yak: all climbs now open, no sensitive routes.

The Machete prairie falcon nest failed, and the Yaks falcon pair never committed to nesting. Given the time in the breeding season, it is too late for them to try re-nesting.

I may have one more update before the end of the season, within the next couple of weeks.

Should be cooler weather this weekend!

Sorry to hear Gavin. Maybe Joe can help the Yaks pair work through thier commitment issues.


On a serious not, better to see a pair succeed and not be able to climb.

Any winged birds on Resurrection?? I say winged given that there were condors active as well.

Yep, there is a prairie falcon pair nesting at Resurrection. They seem to be doing well, with 5 nestlings developing fast.

Oh, and I agree about seeing nests succeed, but I'm also happy to revise advisories as the season develops.
