Access Issue: 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.
10 feet of 5.6 bouldering gets you to the belay ledge. A little funky at the bottom getting to the first bolt. About 20 feet of traversing right leads to some fantastic airy face climbing. It is 140 feet long so you will have to belay from above.
Approach the same as If You Bolt It They Will Come. Start from the ledge 10 feet above and behind the start of If You Bolt It... Climb up then traverse right following bolts to skyline covered with quartz crystal knobs. If you go to the summit three single rope raps. If you do the one pitch it takes two raps. The second rap from the summit involves a swing to the right to the anchors next to the chimney. From this rap you can make it to the ledge without stopping at the belay ledge.
