The 3 toprope routes at the far south end of Neanderthal Wall (far north end of Allied Wall) have a nesting pair of Snowy Owls. Please stay off these routes until further notice. The park has been notified and hopefully some signage will be put up. The route Rock Rat is included.
As of March 7, 2012:
Shakespearean Theater - restricted March, April, May.
Mind Meld - restricted March, April, May.
Porky's Wall - restricted March, April, May, June, through July 31.
Vulture Wall - restricted March, April, May.
Morning Sun Wall - restricted March, April, May, June, July.
Because the area doesn't see much traffic, the wildlife seems to be more concentrated. I've seen a nesting raccoon, praire rattlers, and more all in one day!
The other bouldering starts along the cliff at the top of the hill. Once you find a significant cliff (about 25-30ft high), continue North along the cliff bottom until you see a highball arete (V0+) with a shorter slab to its right. Keep hiking North and you'll see a North-facing arete/face (V5 sds) and a constricting passage with problems on either side (V1 left, V0 right). Once again, hike around the corner to the NW and you'll end up in a much larger tunnel. The overhanging face is a V1 traverse, and the arete at the N end is a V3.
