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.
P1-5 Follow Iconoclast to Library ledge. (We made it 5 pitches)
P6 -5.10d - 15m - From Library Ledge, look out left for a bolt (If you don't feel good about making it to that first bolt, this route may not be for you;) you can bail onto Outer Space). Make a wild, committing deadpoint/jump off the ledge to a decent hold, and pass three bolts trending left to a semi-hanging belay.
P7 - 5.11b- 55m- The Business. Enjoy jaw-dropping exposure as you desperately slap up the arete. The climbing is incredibly sustained at the 10+/11- level for 50 or 60 ft. Bring some decent edging shoes and WAIT FOR SHADE on this pitch. 9 Bolts and then run it out to the summit!
Iconoclast/Psychopath/Edge of Space is one of the best multipitch routes I've ever done.
