Seasonal Peregrine Falcon Closure
The entire south face has been closed from Feb. 1st - July 15th for many years. We are working on getting this minimized, so please respect the process and DO NOT CLIMB HERE DURING THIS TIME!!! Climbers poaching the cliff during this time are usually caught and cited for trespassing.
Rock 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.
This route starts left of Stone Rodeo and its' first bolt is hard to spot as it blends in well with the rock.
Bolts and a pin protect the first pitch.
The second pitch requires pro to 1" including micro-cams.
