Access Issue: Seasonal Raptor Closure Details
Access Issue: Closure for Peregrine Falcon Nesting Details
The south face of Beacon Rock is closed for all technical rock climbing every year from Feb. 1 - July 15 due to peregrine falcon nesting. The south side climber's access trail also is closed for all access during this time.
This route needs a better anchor, yes. It needs one extra bolt, hence the current pg-13 grade. But, Old Warriors Never Dies offers the 5.12 climber the chance to get familiar with Beacon Rock and the movement you often find there. The moves are fun, you are often hugging the pillar, and balance is key. I just cleaned it yesterday, but it may need a little extra dusting. All in all, if it gets done more, it will be a great PDX test piece and is worth it! Sweet!
