A pair of golden eagles regularly nest on Bridge Creek Wall. When in effect, starting January 1, PLEASE DO NOT CLIMB or travel within 1/2 mile of Bridge Creek Wall. As a reference, the climb Condorphamine Addiction is just outside of this 1/2 mile buffer, and is OK to climb still. The closure extends through August 15, but there is active monitoring to determine if the seasonal closure can be lifted earlier.
In 2014, there was an active pair of peregrine falcons at Snow Creek Wall, but no official closure was put in effect due to the location of the falcons. The site will be continually monitored with changes or removal of closures updated as necessary.
P1- Tricky start (for a shorter person) leads to an excellent hand and fist crack (easier). Finishes at a two-bolt belay anchor. 5.8
P2- Climb a slabby dihedral protected by three bolts (you can add gear too). This is the crux of the route. Some fun stemming. (A 5.9+ goes right.) Then traverse left on a much easier hand crack. Bolted anchor.
