This is an annual closure that usually lasts from February to August. smithrock.com/seasonal-closures for updates.
"The golden eagle habitat is located in the Monument climbing area. All routes, cliffs and gullies within 1100 feet of the nest are closed. Hiking trails, Staender Ridge and Juniper Spire (The Product) will remain open.
Please refer to 2010 "Rock Climbing Smith Rock State Park" Guide Book by Alan Watts. See pages 244-270.
CLOSED routes are numbers 1-44, which includes Cajun Cliff, Victoria Tower, Little Three Fingered Jack, Puddy's Tower, The Monument, Anglin's Buttress and French Tent Rock."
Hike along the north ridge buttress staying on the 3rd class ridge until a headwall stops the hiking. Follow good pockets and good feet on solid rock until you reach a ledge with anchor. From here it’s 2nd class to the summit.
This is a great rest day summit as Alan Watts states in his book. It’s super chill even though it looks a little intimidating from the base of the backside ridge.
