Access Issue: Seasonal Raptor Nesting Closures Details
There are many seasonal raptor closures with varying dates and specific boundaries. These generally effect The Monument, Kiss of the Lepers, Picnic Lunch Wall and/or Smith Rock group, and possibly elsewhere. These usually run from February to the beginning of August, but each closure is usually shorter than this, and is dependent on the birds' behavior.

While this is certainly a one-sequence wonder route, it's a lot of fun. The crux section is just before the anchors and involves technical long reach moves.

The moves up to the crux are on a much easier pocketed seam, but they are still enjoyable.
Just right of Nine Gallon Buckets and left of Taco Chips. Starts in a pocketed seam.
