While signs are posted in the area, do not hike or climb routes that near the top of the crag. This includes any multipitch route, most of Armory Wall, Villiage Wall and may include the Torture Chamber and North Castle.
If there is any falcon sighting, please go somewhere else to climb. Disruption of falcons will keep them from nesting and could result in strict closure of the climbing area.
Note that the R rating is arguable and should be taken with a grain of salt. The moves to the high-placed first bolt and the clipping stance are not particularly difficult for the route's 10b rating. It seems unlikely that a fall should occur, but climbers should attempt the route with forethought as a fall could result in injury. The R rating primarily serves as a heads up for climbers who are scanning the area for 5.10's which are limited in the Castle Rock area. The safety rating also takes into consideration MP's definition of R as "a fall could be dangerous," which could be accurate. MP's definition of PG13 as "slightly run out," could also be fitting.
Take the R rating and helpful user comments into consideration while looking for climbs to enjoy. Have fun, be safe, and climb on.
