2014 Update: The U.S. Forest Service has reopened Eagle Rock and Security Risk climbing areas in Boulder Canyon which have been closed since Feb. 1 to protect golden eagles during their nesting season. Blob Rock and Bitty Buttress areas remain CLOSED.
Each year, Boulder Canyon raptor nesting area closures are in effect starting February 1st through July 31st at Eagle Rock, Security Risk, Blob Rock, and Bitty Buttress. However, the area is monitored and closures are periodically lifted early (due to no active nest, nest site failure, or early fledging). This monitoring program is a partnership with the Forest Service Boulder Ranger District, Boulder Climbing Community, and Audubon Society. Check back periodically during times of closure for updates. More info at www.fs.usda.gov/recmain/arp/recreation.
This information is a public crowdsourcing effort between the Access Fund,
and Mountain Project. You should confirm closures, restrictions, and/or related dates.
It looks like you can clip the first three bolts on this guy without committing to the climb. ??? This bolting style is similiar to this climb. I guess I don't understand why you need 3 bolts in 4 feet.

Referring to the comment above: The first bolt is either to belay from or to hold the rope in with. #2 and #3 are for climbing. I suppose #4 was not needed.
Good route overall, kind of slick when humid. Very fun moves with some power stemming.
This route is not actually above Rhodian Shores, actually above the anchor up and left of that. Better yet, continue up to the corner and belay off of gear or clip the first 2 bolts nad come down to bring your partner up.
