In 2015 and 2016, there was a pair of golden eagles at 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.
Once around the arete and onto the west face, follow a 4-inch fist crack for 15 feet and then climb steeply up a bolted face and arete onto the summit ridge of the tower.
This pitch has a little bit of slab climbing, a clean fist crack and some very airy face climbing at the top. You top out on a little summit with great views of the Icicle Creek valley - very fun. We rapped back down to one of the Yard Art belays with a 70 m.
