Access Issue: Seasonal Raptor Closure Details
Access Issue: Closure for Peregrine Falcon Nesting Details
The south face of Beacon Rock is closed for all technical rock climbing every year from Feb. 1 - July 15 due to peregrine falcon nesting. The south side climber's access trail also is closed for all access during this time.
Description [Suggest Change]
For being a very unique climb with fun moves, Fresh Squeeze sees very little traffic. Somewhat questionable rock at the bottom may be the cause, but solid rock beginning after an obvious roof about a third of the way up makes for fun face climbing protected by intermittent cracks. The redpoint crux is up high, pulling into a right facing corner, but a tricky section in the middle makes the entire climb interesting and enjoyable.
Location [Suggest Change]
The climb just left of Windsurfer. It starts on top of a small pillar leaning against the wall.
Protection [Suggest Change]
A piton protects moves in the middle of the climb and another protects near the top, but the rest of the climb is all gear. Nuts and cams (metolious sizes 1-7 are sufficient) will do the job.
