2014 Update: Blob Rock, Bitty Buttress, and all seasonal raptor closure areas on U.S. Forest Service land will be re-opened August 1, 2014 for climbing.
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 a line that splits off of Heterohedral over a small bulge protected by 2 bolts with brown-painted hangers. It is probably easier for taller folks, with those above 6' probably thinking it is easier and those 5'6" or less thinking it is more difficult.
Start as for Heterohedral, pop over a small bulge at a left-angling crack. Continue up less-than vertical terrain along a groove with limited natural protection to finish with the last bolt or two of Diamonds and Rust.
