Access Issue: Seasonal Peregrine Falcon Closure Details
The entire south face has been closed from Feb. 1st - July 15th for many years. We are working on getting this minimized, so please respect the process and DO NOT CLIMB HERE DURING THIS TIME!!! Climbers poaching the cliff during this time are usually caught and cited for trespassing.
Begin immediately left of tunnel #1, and pull bouldery moves up to the high first bolt. It would be a good idea to stick-clip this. Otherwise, make sure your belayer is spotting. After the first bolt, there is a pod for a 3/4" cam that protects the run-out to the next bolt. From here it gets easier, but you will have to make continuously strenuous pulls while finding creative rest stances. Romp up the finishing flake to a heady mantel onto the ledge. This is a good introduction to the steeper routes at Beacon.
Hike down the "climbers trail" past the popular Southeast face route. The route is located immediately left of tunnel #1.
