Access Issue: South Face Closed to Climbing Feb. 1st - July 30th Details
Closed February 1- July 30 for nesting Peregrine Falcons. As per the multiple National Monument signs, the entire south side of Pilot Rock (including all climbing on this page except the northwest gully) is closed for peregrine falcon nesting from February 1 to July 30. From the sign, "the small population found in Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument and the Soda Mountain Wilderness represents a significant achievement for the peregrine falcon population in southern Oregon. We appreciate the public support and cooperation that we continue to have for protecting these remarkable birds."
An awesome rhyolitic volcano plug situated in the Siskiyou Mtns. with columns that tilt 20-30 degrees to the northeast. Fun climbing with a handful of 2-3 pitch routes. A lot of the routes have loose rock, so a brain bucket is a good idea.
Take exit 6 from the I-5 freeway. Follow 99 past the Mt. Ashland turnoff and continue under the freeway. Three miles later turn off onto the Pilot Rock Road to the left. Follow the road 2-3 miles until you reach the trailhead. Break right once you reach the base of the rock and the routes will appear shortly.
