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.
Located on the Southwestern side of Castle Rock, Deadline tackles the improbable looking roof using a combination of crack and sport climbing skills .
In essence, the route consists of two complicated boulder problems separated by an insecure kneebar. The lower crux tests your crack climbing skills while the upper crux centers around finger strength, and body tension. Expect difficult clips.
Although this route isn't much to look at, the movement and position are among the best I have encountered on the Front Range. So whether Rob or Jerry did it first, this route is a must if you can!
Addendum: This route has been written up in Alpinist 18.
Two bolts and small cams. Addendum: Apparently, this line has been climbed without bolts.
