If you aren't sure if raptors are breeding here, then listen and watch for defensive behavior such as screeching or diving (links to info). If raptors are breeding in this area please climb somewhere else and let other climbers know.
Pressures on wildlife can be immense and are multiplied by effects of climate change and pollutants. Choosing to climb away from nest sites reduces unnecessary stresses to the birds. Give these animals a chance to thrive.

As eluded to above portions of this route are choss. The section around bolts 3 and 4 is particularly suspect. My partner and I pulled off two softball-sized holds and eroded a key foot during an afternoon of attempts. Nevertheless after a couple of runs the rock quality wasn't an issue as I knew what to use and trust.
If I thought I had even the slightest chance of pulling the boulder problem at the start, I would definitely return to this line. For now this route is just another reason to train.
