Eagle Rock, Blob Rock, Bitty Buttress, and Security Risk will close Feb. 1 until July 31 for raptor nesting. Depending on updated information, the closure time can be shortened or lengthened.
Update as of 7/24/15: Per Beverly Baker, FS Wildlife Biologist:
Boulder Canyon eagles fledged two birds again this year! We removed signs and changed our web site yesterday.
All crags are now open to 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.

and Mountain Project. You should confirm closures, restrictions, and/or related dates.
This is a pleasant but obscure route on the left side of this slabby cliff. It can be very nice on a hot summer morning.
Hop up on a small ledge. Place a #2 Friend. Follow the bolts on small but decent edges until the 3rd bolt. The line of least resistance at the crux can be found by moving left briefly. Scamper up easier terrain above and clip the last bolt. Find an anchor at a tree.
Descend left or rappel using a tree or the anchors for Quick Chill.
