Access Issue: Seasonal Raptor Closure ::: No top access - private land
SEASONAL RAPTOR CLOSURE TAKES EFFECT JAN 15 EACH YEAR. Climbers have demonstrated 100% compliance rate and must continue. Violators are subject to a ticket and fine. The BLM will be monitoring the territory, which includes all of the crags and the approach trails. The closure could be partially lifted May 15th, depending on the nesting scenarios.
Please respect adjacent private landowners. While the climbing area is mainly BLM, a portion of the cliff and access may be on private property. The mesa on top of the columns is private ranchland. Please do not top out or approach from above to rappel or set top ropes. Local climbers have established a positive relationship with the adjacent private property owners and it is important to maintain their trust for long-term access.
If you can reach the opening lock, the grade makes sense. If not, it's really hard to get established on the route and it will be much more difficult. Pull hard through the first couple moves and don't let your guard down higher up.
About 3/4 of the way towards the north end on the main wall. Look for an obvious offset splitter with chains visible at the top under a plain ledge. The whole route can be seen from the Gold Rush base columns. (see photo)
1-2 BD green C3s for the start and doubles of 0.3-1 with an extra 2 and 3.
