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.
DescriptionThe original start takes you up through some very large detached flakes. Not recommended. Otherwise start up the first 20' of Spring Fever and step right at the first ledge. Climb a short crack and mantel onto the next ledge below the 5" crack. Climb this chimney-style, bumping the #5 as you go. Near the top you will be forced to switch to the right and climb to the top of the pillar, and back down the other side. Rope drag will be pretty bad, but make sure you ditch that #5 late so your second doesn't take a heinous swing out of the crack and around the corner...
This route shares anchors with Tenacee Stemming and Seagull and is thus a great climb for putting top-ropes on these harder gems.
Originally this route continued across the ledges, around a corner into an easy crack, and joined up with Right Gull. Rockfall in 2016 seems to have erased that boring option completely.
