Per Citsalp: raptor closures (peregrine falcons) are in effect in 2019: the South Face climbing area is impacted by these closures May 15 - July 31 from Blackish Blobs (west side of S. Face) across the South Face to Sunday Morning. . . and these include the top of the rock (above the climbs, not the hike to the "summit") and the descent trail. Other climbing areas should remain open.
Per Rodney Ley 1: as of 21 May 2016, there is a Prairie Falcon (possibly Peregrine) nest with eggs at the top of this route (Sunday Morning Coming Down) area. The Lory State Park staff have placed a "Trail Closed" sign near the approach, but they don't mention it is for raptor protection.
Please avoid until mid-summer, perhaps the park staff will remove the sign when the birds have moved on.
Please consult the Lory State Park Rock Climbing guide for more information:
Another fun entry level sport climb, it starts with a short, right-facing corner (crux) then continues up the pillar between two black grooves. This route is easily set as a toprope by walking around left to the top of the climb.
It has interesting and fun moderate climbing on knobs. Some people describe this route as a "giggler".
