As of 10/6/13 at 528pm, the CO Hwy 119 through Boulder Canyon has reopened. The most recent information is that OSMP and all the terrain north of CO 119 is closed.
The September floods released significant rockfall, and the Canyon is closed at the entrance out of Boulder. Certain areas may be accessible from Nederland, but it is unclear when the road will be reopened and whether pullouts for parking will be damaged.
This information is a public crowdsourcing effort between the Access Fund,
and Mountain Project. You should confirm closures, restrictions, and/or related dates.

Look slightly up slope in the trees and you will see the block, cross the creek to the block. In spring and summer the creek maybe to rapid to cross.
Rather than describe every problem, I placed a topo in the header. I have completed several thin edge routes on the east face of the block, including a lip traverse. A hand, roof crack is found on the far left side of the block and can be climbed either way since the crack splits the block. A roof project is found on the right side of the east face....[more]Browse More Classics in CO
