Access Issue: Peregrine Falcons Details
This area is now a Forest Service observed Peregrin Falcon nesting site. If you see falcons please give them plenty of space, and do not climb anywhere near their nest. You’ll know all about it if they are actively nesting as they are perhaps one of the most vocal birds in these woods. Though removed from the endangered species list and considered a stable population, they remain a protected species under the Migratory Bird Treaty Act and The Forest Service has the authority to effect closures for Peregrine Falcons because they are listed on the regionally generated Sensitive Species list. This list was updated in 2012 and comes down from the Southwest Regional Office in Albuquerque with input from the Game and Fish Dept. It’s always good to remember that while these crags entertain us immensely, it is home to a wide variety of animals. Temporary closures may be effected if it is determined necessary for the protection of vulnerable chicks.
Debra wanders quite a bit but that's part of her charm. Boulder up to a ledge with or without your belayer. Having your belayer up on the ledge will make the initial crux section feel safer. Getting to the third bolt is the crux requiring some power and technical ability. From there it's far from over. Negotiate some pockets on the arete and make some delicate sequential moves right to get established on the smooth slab. Move back left past a desperate slab crux. Great climbing near the arete again leads to a ledge. Two more bolts lead you up the final block to the anchor. Devious route requiring lots of technique.
Far left side of the amphitheater, just right of where the approach trail meets the wall. First route right of Lion Bait dihedral. Left of crack climbs.
