A pair of golden eagles regularly nest on Bridge Creek Wall. When in effect, starting January 1, PLEASE DO NOT CLIMB or travel within 1/2 mile of Bridge Creek Wall. As a reference, the climb Condorphamine Addiction is just outside of this 1/2 mile buffer, and is OK to climb still. The closure extends through August 15, but there is active monitoring to determine if the seasonal closure can be lifted earlier.
In 2014, there was an active pair of peregrine falcons at Snow Creek Wall, but no official closure was put in effect due to the location of the falcons. The site will be continually monitored with changes or removal of closures updated as necessary.
Most routes face south and east. They are mostly moderate single pitch trad routes, with some bolted routes.
They are great in the early or late season because this area stays dryer and the snow melts sooner than further up canyon. But quite hot in the summer because they mostly face south.
Has afternoon shade where facing east.
The best trail starts at the dirtbike-trials-type trail, about 200 feet east of the Leavenworth Water building on east end of parking lot.
There is a seep that is wet usually all year, the trail left goes up to Poison Ivy crack and planet of the eights.
The right branch heads up to Purina and Careno.
