Access Issue: Closed to climbing March 15 - June 30 Details
This area is closed March 15 - June 30 for peregrine falcon nesting.
Um, I suppose the real crux is, as Squeezing the Lemmon suggests, the last 10 feet of the climb. But, I found much of the climb sustained. A nice route, make sure that you are comfortable with 5.9 - 5.10 moves a body length (or more) above a bolt. At times crimpy, this well protected route is a must-do!
On the upper wall left of Rupleys; this is the first bolt line to the left of the Rupley Route. Begin on the first pitch of Fort Stress (or alternate) from a ledge.
