Seasonal Raptor Closures
Each year, the USFS monitors for raptor nesting.
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.
Good rock, good moves. Start sitting, grab the ledge, and head straight up. You may find that the topout is the crux.
If you climb mainly in the v2 v3 range, this boulder, which also holds The Rail and The Scoop, is a nice place to stop.
The Rail is probably the best landmark here. Look for a fairly low, large jug ledge, from which a few problems start.
The Rail is right next to the trail, uphill from The Pocket boulder. If you find the Rail boulder, look on the left side of the boulder for this one.
A pad or two, and a spotter for the topout.
