Seasonal Raptor Closure Details
All faces of Beacon Rock with the exception of “Stone Soup” on the northwest face are closed for all technical rock climbing effective Feb. 1, 2017, due to peregrine falcon nesting season. Climbers must rappel down ";Stone Soup"; when finished, no walk-off access is currently available. The climber's trail also is closed for all access effective Feb. 1, 2017. The approximate date of when climbing will reopen is around the middle of July 2017 for select areas. The east face is permanently closed for the protection of rare species, cultural and historical resources. The hiking trail to the top of Beacon Rock is open year round.
DescriptionFor 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.
LocationThe climb just left of Windsurfer. It starts on top of a small pillar leaning against the wall.
