If you aren't sure if raptors are breeding here, then listen and watch for defensive behavior such as screeching or diving (links to info). If raptors are breeding in this area please climb somewhere else and let other climbers know.
Pressures on wildlife can be immense and are multiplied by effects of climate change and pollutants. Choosing to climb away from nest sites reduces unnecessary stresses to the birds. Give these animals a chance to thrive.

The first bolt is approximately 25 feet of the ground. While the climbing is not very hard and includes two massive chockstones, the initial section of rock is abysmal so the leader should move with care. A C4 #0.75 could potentially protect the leader but the flake is of dubious strength.
Overall the route is very safe on quality rock. That said the climbing felt slightly more committing than most modern clip-ups.
