Access Issue: Picnic Lunch Wall Routes Closed Feb-Aug Details
There are many 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.

Description [Suggest Change]
Although this route garners a single star in the Watts guidebook, I found the climbing to be sustained and mentally scintillating on good to excellent rock. The crux entails unorthodox moves over a small roof half way to the top but there are many difficult sections beginning off the ground. Reaching the anchors requires climbing over a second small roof (10+) about 10' above the last bolt. A fall would be undesirable at this point.
Location [Suggest Change]
The route begins on the far left side of the Picnic Lunch Wall.
Protection [Suggest Change]
Quick draws for 10 bolts to rappel anchors. A stopper placement may be possible at the final roof. Stick clipping the first bolt is recommended.
