Seasonal Raptor Closure Details
Closure for Peregrine Falcon Nesting Details
The south face of Beacon Rock is closed for all technical rock climbing every year from Feb. 1 - July 15 due to peregrine falcon nesting. The south side climber's access trail also is closed for all access during this time.
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.
