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.

Big holds an a 45 degree wall until you reach the bouldery crux. I really didn't think this thing would go as one of the best young guns had tried it and couldn't or didn't care enough to do it. Rapped it with my buddy Eddie Mofardin to look at going left, a variation that has since been done, Eddie noticed a sidepull hold out right which was the ticket to ride and lead to it being climbed. Also of note Eddie probably could have done the FA before me but waited for me to do it as I had done the work to bolt it.
