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.
This is pretty fun although short; good if Happy Hour is a zoo. This route is found below the Grins area on the right side of the crag on a short separate buttress. It's the only crack. Sneak up to the hand crack, and then pull jugs through a fun roof to a ledge. Now balance up with no pro to the top. A fall from the top could be bad.
Not much needed, but the bottom protects well with a #3, ~0.75 Camalot and a sling around a horn. Pro is imaginary above the midpoint.
