Seasonal Raptor Closure Details
All faces of Beacon Rock with the exception of “Stone Soup” on the northwest face are closed for all technical rock climbing effective Feb. 1, 2017, due to peregrine falcon nesting season. Climbers must rappel down ";Stone Soup"; when finished, no walk-off access is currently available. The climber's trail also is closed for all access effective Feb. 1, 2017. The approximate date of when climbing will reopen is around the middle of July 2017 for select areas. The east face is permanently closed for the protection of rare species, cultural and historical resources. The hiking trail to the top of Beacon Rock is open year round.
DescriptionStand start with a foot on a low small foot jib and deadpoint /dyno up to the one good small edge at the top of the boulder...get your balance, double on the edge and finesse the mantle onto the upper mossy slab to top out. Super fun problem!!!
If you reach out left and use the left arete to top it out, basically the same as the problem Left Arete, then it bumps the grade down to a V1-2.
