Per Rik Henrikson, Boulder County Sherriff: please note, Parks and Open Space WAS determined that this crag WAS subject to indefinite closure; however, a site visit with a state biologist has confirmed this site is very close to a closed area, but this crag is OPEN TO CLIMBING.
This information is a public crowdsourcing effort between the Access Fund,
and Mountain Project. You should confirm closures, restrictions, and/or related dates.
Eds. Per Boulder Parks and Open Space, this crag WAS closed indefinitely to the public for any purpose. Now, according to State Biologist who has confirmed this with a site visit, this crag is very close to a closed are but is OPEN TO CLIMBING!
The crux is getting over the roof at the start. Start as for Red Bull, clip a bolt over the roof and make a series of hard moves getting established over the roof. Clip the third bolt and then reach a ledge, place the cams and then fire up the cool arete firing past two more bolts to the anchor. ...[more]Browse More Classics in CO
An awful short cliff, but with great views from it.

I regret to have to pass on this information from the Boulder Parks and Open Space via the Boulder County Sheriffs, this crag is closed indefinitely to the public for any purpose. Fines start at $50. Sorry.
Addendum: Tony, THANK YOU for updating this information below. The crag is open. Yeah!
The crag is no longer closed. As of today: ------------------------------------------- Tony, High Energy Crag and Higher Energy Crag are not located within a closed area. We have recently confirmed this definitively with a site visit, as the border of the closure is fairly close. But to reiterate, High Energy Crag and Higher Energy Crag are open for climbing.
This information is open to all the public.
Thanks for your patience,
Susan Spaulding Senior Wildlife Biologist Boulder County Parks and Open Space
