The Mohonk Preserve has announced:

Due to nesting peregrine falcons, the section of the Trapps cliff between, and including the routes "Broken Hammer" (5.4) and "The Blue Stink" (5.3) is temporarily closed to rock climbing.

This area includes popular climbs such as "The Nose", "Fillipina", "Bold-Ville", "Winter", "The Fall", "Spring", "Oblique Twique", "Kligfield's Follies" and "Simple Suff".

Do not use ascent trails or rappel routes that access this area.
Do not use the section of the cliff base climber's trail between these routes.
Please refrain from excessive noise making while in the vicinity of this closure.

Let's wish the endangered Peregrines good luck, and thank you for your cooperation.

This closure is for the Trapps, not the Nears. I would change the title as it may confuse people unfamiliar with the routes.

Also, Thank you to the falcons for leaving the Something Interesting to Madame G area open this year!

Alicia, don't thank so soon! Peregrines are known to move their nesting sites mid season, so time will tell!

I'd be a-ok with them occupying those very sun-exposed routes when it's a bit warmer. It's right about that time I generally like heading to four seasons and sleepy hollow anyway to soak up the shade ;)

As of July 5, 2014: A young falcon from the Trapps Cliff nest site is currently being rehabbed for release later this summer. Thank you for your cooperation!
