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.
DescriptionRomp up the ridge line on the southern most tip of Beacon rock, left of the arena of terror. Pass one set of anchor bolts, continuing further right and up. P1 is dirty, perhaps climb one of the face routes instead. P2 is money! Step right from a block to an awesome 11- finger crack. The pitch steps right to a hand and pumpy fist crack, ending with a short off width. Full value!
2 old rusty bolts are found on the left at the tip of the pitch. Cracks can be used to make a gear belay instead. A final 10+ hand and finger crack pitch lands you into sandcastle climbing, be wary of loose jenga blocks. End on the trail at a tree.
