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.
The 1st pitch goes up a wide blocky crack to a flaring but low angle hand crack to belay at the face of a steep wall above with a small tree or horizontal cracks under for a belay.
2nd pitch is a huge rightward traverse below the upper wall all the way out to the top, 5.8 lay back up on the last part. The Kramar guide calls the layback 5.8, but I did not find this, mostly low angle and not recommended. The first pitch is worth doing, just traverse left below or above the small tree belay to get onto last crack of R&D.
