SEASONAL RAPTOR CLOSURE TAKES EFFECT JAN 15 EACH YEAR. Climbers have demonstrated 100% compliance rate and must continue. Violators are subject to a ticket and fine. The BLM will be monitoring the territory, which includes all of the crags and the approach trails. The closure could be partially lifted May 15th, depending on the nesting scenarios.
ADJACENT PRIVATE LAND
Please respect adjacent private landowners. While the climbing area is mainly BLM, a portion of the cliff and access may be on private property. However the entirety of the Main Wall is public with a solid buffer of space before the boundary, so you are allowed to access up above that wall. Please be aware of the rest of the private land above the cliff though. Local climbers have established a positive relationship with the adjacent private property owners and it is important to maintain their trust for long-term access.
This thing has some amazing movement guarded by some suboptimal protection. Scamper up Lou Dog's opening chimney to a sit down rest before the business. 20' of physical moves on generally good holds lead to a final no-hands on a sloping shelf. Above this is another 20' of brilliant, thin stemming and arete pinching with somewhat marginal pro. From the finishing jug, I climbed right and scrambled up to the Lou Dog anchor to lower off. Spanning over to Lou Dog would be hard if you're short.
