Beacon Rock is only open to climbers from July 15th through February 2nd
due to peregrine falcon nesting.
From the Washington Park's Page
Beacon Rock offers excellent opportunities for rock climbing except where it interferes with nesting raptors, primarily on the south face. The presence of the falcon nest requires that the south face be closed to technical rock activity February 1 to mid-July annually; open the rest of the year. The east face is closed year-round due to environmental sensitivity. Call the park at (509) 427-8265 for more information.
DescriptionStart in a corner just below a vegetated crack. Move a few feet up and traverse slightly right to a thin flake. (At the bush is a wasp nest). Many fun liebacking moves lead to the barndoor crux where the flake is very close to the arete. Fun liebacks lead to a ledge below the anchor.
LocationFirst route to the right of the Arena of Terror.
ProtectionGear to .75 inches. Bolt anchor with rings.
