Access Issue: Seasonal Peregrine Falcon Closure Details
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.
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, using 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.
