Looks like this route is now CLOSED. We went to Hen's Nest today (Apr 12, 2007) and this route had been fenced off by the Forest Service for Archaeological Studies. I really wanted to climb this one too. It looks hella fun!

It looks like the closure is permanent for this section of the wall. The signs have all been changed to something along the lines of "area closed" and lists all the reasons that it may be closed rather than information about an "archeological study."
