Access Issue: Seasonal Raptor Closure Details
Access Issue: 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.
Description [Suggest Change]
Scramble to the top of the mossy ledge about 10' up shared with Fall Guy. Step left and climb delicate edges with no pro to a heads-up move before you clip the first bolt - a rusty 3/8" bolt with a homemade hanger! Despite the Tim Olson topo, this is the only fixed pro on the route. Make strenuous moves up the inside of this stemming feature, making use of occasional finger locks and good edges for feet. The first gear placement comes far above the first bolt, don't blow it! A thoughtful, core-intensive crux move hits you before the angle drops and you can make tenuous moves through the now-clean but still somewhat spooky upper ledges to the anchor.

Just left of the tunnel #1, straight off the top of the mossy mini-pillar
Protection [Suggest Change]
One old bolt, lots of small nuts and a few small cams
