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.
Start just left of a large maple cluster below a horn of rock. Climb up to this and mount the horn, slinging the top for pro. Grapple with the face momentarily then use the tree (or not, harder) to mount the ledge. Stem up this to a stance above the pillar on the left, clipping pitons in the seam on the right. You can fiddle in a small cam just above the 2nd for backup. Crux stemming and high feet get you to the last piton and onto a ledge system. Continue directly up to get into the real goodness of Blownout or traverse right to the first anchor to setup TR's for Aging Fruits and Fall Guy.
Just left, uphill of Tunnel #1, just right of a large, detached pillar next to the trail
Slings, small cams, draws for clipping the three pitons
