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.
Layback big feature to ledge and then past a crux section with a high clip. Ramble up some easier climbing to a mantle onto a ledge at base of dihedral second crux. Surmount dihedral and finish wandering up left and up past jugs and easier climbing (put long draw on last bolt to reduce drag) to anchors. Fun, varied boulder problems mark this climb but it's ledgy nature takes away from the quality. Best to TR the route to clean draws.
Starts on the left side of decent sized cave, below a large boulder. Same start as for Hobo Joe.
