Access Issue: Seasonal Raptor Closure Details
Access Issue: Closure for Peregrine Falcon Nesting Details
The south face of Beacon Rock is closed for all technical rock climbing every year from Feb. 1 - July 15 due to peregrine falcon nesting. The south side climber's access trail also is closed for all access during this time.
Description [Suggest Change]
This route got done ground up led/wirebrushed and Jim named it Couchmaster. As we were climbing it Jim spied a mossy line just to the left and later went up and dug that out I named that one Cruisemaster (changed later to Crusin'). That led to Jim seeing the route to the left of that and those guys named that one Stardust. All good lines, although Crusin' seems to be the only one getting much action as it is the best. This slab all had so much moss on it that it looked nothing like it does now.
Location [Suggest Change]
Start 8 feet to the right of the Crusin' crack, directly under what appears to be a small roof. Climb the fingercrack leading to the roof, turn the roof on the left and follow the arch up to where Crusin joins Couchmaster and then head up and right on the SE Corner traverse to the SE Corner bolt belay.
Protection [Suggest Change]
The same rack as Crusin works great on this line. Adding a (bomber) 4" cam is optional for the roof, although it also takes small gear in the same area.
