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.
Start as for Aging Fruits off the top of the mossy ledge. Step right and get into the seam. The first clip might be a little scary. Fight your way through small edges, side-pulls, and body positioning past three more bolts. Make cruxy moves onto a ledge with some bad fall potential. The rock above has been cleaned and trundled, but climb gingerly through this easy section. Clip left and then step left at the huge jug to join Aging Fruits then climb through the now-clean but still somewhat spooky runout through the upper ledges to the anchor.
