Yes, the North End at Moore's is open. There may be a few signs hanging about that say that it is still closed, but we can ignore these.
In addition, and more importantly, because peregrines have not nested at Moore's home for quite a few years, the park has decided there will be no need for an automatic seasonal closure. The return of nesting peregrines will likely mean a return to seasonal closures, and so the park system has asked us to keep an eye out for peregrines at Moore's.
Are you too shocked to believe you eyes? Well, here it is straight from the horse's mouth, or in this case, straight from an email I received from Matt Haynes of Hanging Rock State Park:
I can confirm that the North End of Moore’s is open to climbing. We may still have lingering signs that have been overlooked. I will walk that trail as soon as I can to ensure all closure signs have been removed. We have not had nesting peregrines for several years now, so our management strategy is to keep the entire wall open and close it only when birds are seen. If you could inform climbers to keep an eye out for nesting birds this would help out tremendously, as the more eyes we have the better.

That's fantastic, eh? Props to Hanging Rock for doing the right thing.
