The National Park Service has temporarily closed the Sunset Wall area to climbing because of Peregrine Falcon activity in the area. The Park Service is trying to encourage the raptors to return to their natural habitats, moving them out of urban and suburban environments. It is unclear if the birds are actually nesting in the area or just using Sunset as a roost. If no nesting activity is found the area could be reopened in the next few weeks, however if nests are located the area will remain closed until mid to late June. Please be respectful of the closure so that we can maintain our close relationship with the Park Service and their opinion of us as an asset.
