Seasonal Raptor Closure Details
All faces of Beacon Rock with the exception of “Stone Soup” on the northwest face are closed for all technical rock climbing effective Feb. 1, 2017, due to peregrine falcon nesting season. Climbers must rappel down ";Stone Soup"; when finished, no walk-off access is currently available. The climber's trail also is closed for all access effective Feb. 1, 2017. The approximate date of when climbing will reopen is around the middle of July 2017 for select areas. The east face is permanently closed for the protection of rare species, cultural and historical resources. The hiking trail to the top of Beacon Rock is open year round.
DescriptionRock Police climbs a short step to a slab and then proceeds up the face, staying to the right side and uses the right leaning arete to get you to a set of anchors. Fancy heel hooking, reaches and high steps should round out your climbing style as you stay on the outer right edge of the face on this route. It was rebolted in 2015 and so is fresh to go.
A second pitch continues to the belay ledge at the base of the classic SE Face corner. From here continue up right of the anchors (old bolt) and onto the outer edge of the steep slab. Climb the outer edge until it joins the SE Face route at the top of the slab.
