Potentially unavailable to climbing February through July if raptors are breeding here.
This area is historically used by nesting falcons, hawks, owls or other raptors. Breeding season varies but is roughly February through July. Nesting raptors are protected by law.
If you aren't sure if raptors are breeding here, then listen and watch for defensive behavior such as screeching or diving (links to info). If raptors are breeding in this area please climb somewhere else and let other climbers know.
Pressures on wildlife can be immense and are multiplied by effects of climate change and pollutants. Choosing to climb away from nest sites reduces unnecessary stresses to the birds. Give these animals a chance to thrive.

This is the bolted route all the way to the left of the easily accessible part of the south face. Boulder up to first bolt and clip, crux is directly below (and protected by) the first bolt. Move right after the fourth bolt and clip to anchor at top of pitch 1. Pitch two goes straight up from the anchor -- it is vertical face with jug holds for about 15 feet, then it gets real easy to the anchors.
Mixed route. Clip the 4 bolts and protect as needed in between with nuts and small to medium cams. First belay station has colds shuts and chains. Pitch 2 has one bolt - protect as needed with small to medium pro. Chains at top to rap.
