Peregrine falcons select nest sites on cliffs in the Upper Skagit Valley, including the Climbing Management Areas of Newhalem West (Ryan’s Wall) and Newhalem East. As required in the NPS Superintendent’s Compendium, these areas will be closed to all public from March 1st to July 15th of each year, or until the young falcons have fledged or NPS staff have determined that nesting will not occur on a specific wall during this period. Access Fund, Washington Climbers Coalition and NPS partner on a volunteer raptor monitoring program to determine nesting activity.

There are supposedly 3 pitches total, as well as a slightly harder variation that moves right about 1/2way up. The description here is for P1.
Walk along hwy 20 for ~150yrds to a trail on the left, which leads to the wall in about 30 seconds.
The fourth-most route to the left. Begin just before the ground slopes up to your right. This is basically right where the trail from Hwy20 meets the road.
