<HTML>The following areas are closed to rock climbing due to peregrine falcon nests:

The ?Rostrum?

An active nest was identified in 2001 on the North Face of the Rostrum, a cliff located in the lower Merced River Canyon. The protection area extends to all climbing routes on all sides of the Rostrum. In addition, all climbing routes to the east of the Rostrum, from ?Super Nova? to the Rostrum should not be climbed. All routes on the ?Jungle Gym? and areas further west remain open.

Rhombus Wall

Protection includes the areas in between the Ahwahnee Ramps east to ?Super Slide?. ?Die Schweine Von Oben? is also a protection zone.

Glacier Point area

The cliff face between the east edge of Glacier Point Apron and Illilouette Gorge. Climbing may take place below 200 vertical feet from the base of the cliff.

Hetch Hetchy

Protection area includes Kolana Rock and the rock face immediately west of Wapama Falls.</HTML>

<HTML>Is the Rostrum still closed? I spoke with a person in Yosemite on 4/11/04 that was under the impression that the closure was over for the year due to the perigrine chicks fledging. Any information would be appreciated.</HTML>
