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.
This is currently the rightmost route at The Riviera. It has 3 possible starts. The first 2 add length but are a bit contrived. You can start where Infestation starts and move right in to a groove, start at a crack that angles to a spike and then up, or just below the 1st bolt. The bit around the 1st bolt is probably the brief crux. It eases to probably 5.4 terrain around the 2nd bolt. You have to force yourself a bit right at the 3rd bolt to avoid the top of Infestation.
This is right of Infestation and is currently the rightmost climb at The Riviera.
4 bolts, possibly gear for lower starts, 2 anchor bolts with Mussy hooks shared with Infestation.
